Spectrum Noir November Challenge

It's Challenge Time! Who's in?
The challenge theme for November over at Spectrum Noir is: Christmas and Winter

YAY! Easy enough. Here's what I made...

I colored with Spectrum Noir Markers:
  • Reds - DR6, CR8, CR4
  • Nose - OR2, OR1
  • Holly Leaves - DG3, DG2
  • Arms - EB3
  • Cheek - CR4, Blender
  • Hat - IG9, IG7, IG5, IG3, IG1
  • Snow shadows and shading - IG2, BG2, BG1, Blender

The stamps are from the new Nordic Christmas - Cool Christmas stamp set. For the cardbase, I used the new Nordic Christmas 6"x6" Frosty Morning Embossing Folder with Spectrum Noir High Gloss Cardstock. The shinny texture gives a wonderful look to the design. Some of the details are hard to see in the pic.

I used Sparkle Shimmer Spritz to paint on the scarf, cane and hat band. On the buttons, I added 3D Crystal Lacquer. Stampendous Fran'tage Shaved Ice and Crystal Glitter added to give the snow some bling bling. 

I love how this card turned out! I hope you have time to play this month. Get all the challenge and prize details at:
