Snowman Hugs by Wild Rose Studio's

Good morning to you all again, hope that this finds you well and if you are feeling a little under the weather due to illness or the horrid cold that you pick up again soon :)
Two days in on the back to work thing and not too bad, but then I have Friday off due to working last Friday so a four day week sounds so much better especially when you have special plans for Friday :)

This is something that I created over the weekend and could not resist using this fabulous image call
by Wild Rose Studio
part of the recent new releases for Traditional Xmas

So here is what I did with it

The base layer and contrast is the silver mirror card, and I added layers of my new Marianne dies and a few pearls on top of some old MME papers and just a sprinkling of pearls from the Hobby House.  All topped off with some TH distress ink, love how it shows up the detail on the die cut.

here is a close up of the image
coloured in copics with a little Atyou clear glitter on the snowman and a touch of the Atyou red, blue and orange to create extra depth of colour and more sparkle, which you can never see on the photo's.
