snowflakes in summer

Hello everyone!
This is Kathrin here today sharing another card with you.

I know, it's summer but right now I am totally addicted to those cute fairies Sugar Nellie offers. I have to admit that I had none of these until a few weeks. Then I ordered my first one and am totally hooked now. So I had to get more. And with the hot weather we're having thinking of a cool winter day was really refreshing. That's why I used I grant you one wish.


Of course she can not only be used for a winter-ish card!

I stamped the image in two steps - first I only inked up the wings with a light shade of a blue-ish green and for the next step I inked up the rest, making sure not to have any black ink on the wings' lines. Okay, had to do it twice because I failed on the first try. But I am really please with this effect. It gives those wings a delicate tough...


Usually I color my image first and then pick my papers. But when I went through all my papers because I was looking for a specific one I came across the one that I used for the background of this card and totally loved it for this image. So I made my coloring and the other papers match the colors of the one I just had to use.

I added some pins with big crystals and a few smaller ones around for a frosty look and put some white snowflakes die cuts in the background. 

I also followed the beautiful sketch from The Sugar Bowl.

So, have a wonderful summer day everyone - and if it's too hot where you are maybe my card was able to cool you down a bit.

Hugs,
