Photo Inspirational

Here is my design team inspirational piece, however don't forget to hop over to the main challenge site, to see the rest of the fabulous inspiration.

I used the blue sky as my inspiration with the Swiss dots embossing folder for the snowfall and the torn paper for the snowy ground.

The base layer and contrast is a deep blue, I have added some dark blue bling and ribbon, and surrounded the image with the Memory Box die cut, quite a simple card for me, but wanted the elements to speak for themselves.

Here is a close up of the image coloured in copics, with a Sakura white glaze pen for the snow and glitter on the ground.  I used an Atyou gold for the star. The image is another Nellie Snellen from Grimsby Crafts.
I would like to say hello to my new followers, and as always I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors and followers for the lovely and inspirational comments you leave, which allows me to hop on over in return to see your own lovely work.
