Winter Friend ~

Good Monday morning!  Just popping in with my iCopic post from Friday!  Hope you all had a marvelous weekend!
  I have a wonderful new stamp from the Gorjuss line to share with you today.  Her name is Winter Friend

I am quickly learning that my card making process goes much faster if I pick out my papers first – it just helps to get the whole ball rolling!  I paper pieced her dress with a beautiful gray paper from the Authentique Blissful line.  The sweet stars and sash on her dress are colored over with a Silver AtYou Spica pen - every girl needs a little sparkle!  Since I didn’t want to have a weird fussy cut around her hair, I stamped her head again on a scrap of the vintage cream cardstock and fussy cut the hair out.  Her polar bear friend is lightly colored with R02 (for the ears) and YR30 and YR31 for his fur.  They're just the right shades of yellow to color this guy with!

I wanted to use the oyster Divine Twine with all these wonderful grays, so I tied it into the image by coloring her tights and his collar to match.  To finish the image off, I sponged around the edges with Ranger Distress Antique Linen and added a few black rhinestones.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Oh gosh, this is just beautiful. Your coloring is amazing (should just go without saying) and the colors are too. Gotta love your PP choices and it is all just sooooo good!
