Chin Up

Isn't this image just adorable? This is called Chin Up from Firecracker Designs by Pamela. I'm still playing with the color combo posted over in the challenge forum at SCS, CC188. I knew that I wanted to work with this image. It's so much easier to sit down and make something when you already have something in mind. And with the color combo a given, well, that makes it so much easier, almost no thought process,,,ykwim?

I stamped the image and then sponged all around the image using Pretty in Pink. Then I outlined her in bashful blue for some shadows and then colored in her scarf. I then used my versa marker and colored over all the dots and then used clear ep. I outlined the snow woman and dotted the dots with some glue and added some dazzling diamonds. I strung some pearls to her hands and added some fabulous ribbon (repurposed from a gift) and used my glue dots to add the snowflakes, which were also dazzled with dazzling diamonds. Let me tell you, this stuff is all over, even in my hair. I am so messy when I work! LOL!
The background panel was stamped with snowflake images, also from Firecracker Designs, using a tinted pink versa mark pad and then embossed with hologram ep.
Thanks for checking in.
I'm off to pack! I hope to post one more time before I leave, but if I don't get the chance, let me tell you now that I will miss you while I am gone! I wish you were all traveling with me!
Smiles :)
