Snow Play Layout


I had a heck of a time getting a good picture today!  At this time of year we have very little natural light to work with up here in the Yukon.  That really limits my abilities as a photographer!  Anyway, I hope you can see the details in this photo!

This layout is for a holiday challenge at Pink Cat Studio!  I absolutely love the Pink Cat Studio stamps!  The little children remind me of my own girls!  For this layout I used Lily Snowboarder.  She's the first digital stamp I ever bought!  I coloured her in using coloured pencils!  No really!  I don't have any Copic markers (though I'd love to try them) and coloured pencils are the only way I can manage to get the shading I like!

On a lot of layouts that I've seen lately, there have been tears in the distressed edges with a different colour of patterned paper peeking through.  I wanted to try that on this layout.  I used a retired Designer Series Paper Pack from Stampin' Up! so all my paper coordinated easily.  I (of course) inked the edges of all the paper and distressed the outside edges.  For a little more distressing, I spritzed a little Apple Glimmer Mist here and there.  For a little more detail I added some Prima Say It In Crystals flourishes that I've had in my stash a long time. 
Have a delightful day!
Hannah

What a wonderful way to use the snowboard Lily image - she's perfect for your gorgoeus layout! I love the effect of the paper tearing over the top of another paper, it looks really effective. Thank you for joining in with the Pink Cat Studio Holiday Challenge!
