It's VC Stamps Challenge Day!




Cute, cute, cute! That's what this image is! Snow Friends is a new image just released by Victoria Case yesterday. I love the expressions on their faces... I airbrushed around the image and "colored" the snowman with glitter. The blue highlights are Baby Blue Liquid Pearls (I told you I loved them!), the rest is colored with copics.






This card is actually a gatefold card. The little fairy (Wish Upon a Star) and the word magical are only adhered on one side so the card can open in the center. I used loads of stickles on this... I ran cardstock through my Swiss Dots cuttlebug folder and then put gold stickles on top of the dots. The large star is also covered in gold stickles. The image was colored with copics, the poinsetta and leaves were outlined with a glossy glaze and dipped in glitter. I went back in and filled the rest of them with the glaze. I love this little fairy, she looks so amazed and in awe. It reminds me of the feeling you got (maybe) when you were a kid and realized the true meaning of Christmas. Wonderful image Victoria.
