The Scrappers Cove added these items to this month's card art kit challenge: Bo Bunny A Gift of Love double-sided patterned paper in Winter Joy Snow Angels and Winter Joy Snow Fall, Bazzill cardstock in purple and light green, a "chilly" ribbon slide, a Doodlebug pastel sugar coated brad, iCandy Winter Joy enamel brad, Hero Arts felt snowflakes in purple and blue.
I used a Spellbinders Scalloped Octagon to die cut my stamped and Copic filled image of the Magnolia Snowy Hug from the 2010 Merry Little Christmas Collection.
I masked the diecut using a mask of the filled image and the Spellbinders border then airbrushed a background.
I added sparkle with Ranger's Star Dust Stickles straight from the bottle and by painting some over areas using a paint brush.
After edging the card with Colorbox Chalk Ink in Prussian Blue, I used Stamp-n-Stuff Kaleidoscope Transparent embossing powder to line the edges of my card. Metallic Ribbon, distributed by Michael's, adds some sparkle between patterned paper pieces. My Sentiments Exactly Innie & Outie adds a touching sentiment. Punch Bunch snowflakes and Bazzill Basics self-adhesive jewels add a little more shimmer.
I love how the Magnolia Doohickeys Poinsettia and Bon Voyage Foliage adds a beautiful, simple touch.
