Delight in little things...


Today I am wrapping up my 2017 cards with another design team post for Dreamerland Crafts. This beautiful girl is called, Spreading the Good News, and while the original image has her blowing leaves I thought she would be cute for a more winter themed card. So I wiped away the ink from the leaves before stamping, leaving that space blank. Next I colored her up in some pretty winter blues and purples. And then I tackled the background... I was envisioning one of our local parks that sits right along the lake and has a little bridge connecting one half of the park to the other. I wanted Good News to be stopped on that bridge with the trees on one side and the water on the other with the freshly fallen snow covering everything. Last but not least I used a white gel pen to draw in a swirl of cold and snow for her to be blowing instead of the leaves. I think the end result turned out quite magical, if I do say so myself. It's always good to end the year on a card I'm really happy with, makes me feel confident and upbeat about where my creative journey will go in 2018. :)

Have a happy new year my friends!

Gorgeous! The perspective and fading into the background is stunning! The snow swirls are elegant. I could picture her kissing or whispering to a little bird too. What a lovely card!
