The image is one of the newer ones from Conie Fong, called "Snowflake Wishes" and I think she's so beautiful.
When I first printed this image, I thought about making an entire scene with her rather than just a single-image card. But I spent so much time on the coloring, adding lots of shading and highlights, that I decided on just the image as the focus. I find that when it comes to Conie's images, I love to put the detail into the coloring and I rarely make scene cards with them.
I did take time to do a bit of water coloring on a scrap of water color paper which I added to the background. It does look a bit like a stormy sky. :-D In any case, here's another card for my Christmas stash.
I used Peacock, Linen, and Mint colors
(plus Peach for her skin)

Glitter added to snowball, snowflakes, and wings

Conie Fong has two challenges that run every month and they can be found on our Facebook page. One is for coloring only and the other is for completed projects. Each challenge requires the use of a Conie Fong image but how can you resist any of her cute images? I hope we're going to see you playing along. Don't belong to the Conie Fong FB group yet?
