* C.R.A.F.T GDT: Shabby Chic Ice Queen



I am delighted to be joining C.R.A.F.T. Challenge Blog for a month of Guest DT posts. Thank 
you to Jo and the C.R.A.F.T. Team for inviting me.

The challenge theme this fourth and final week is Shabby Chic and the sponsors are Colour of Love and SheepSki Designs.

I was fortunate to receive this beautiful image, called Ice Queen, from SheepSki Designs. Here is my project:

I coloured the image with Copic markers. I added Glossy Accents to the jewels in her head dress. I used a die to cut the image out. Keeping the die in place, I lightly blended Pumice Stone Distress Oxide around the image. I added some Quickie Glue pen and some iridescent glitter to the snowflakes and to the Ice Queen's eyebrows.

I I used some pretty pearlescent card to die cut the lacy borders and tucked them behind the image and also behind the patterned paper image mat. The image itself is popped on foam tape for some dimension. I added several layers of distressed edged mats finishing with a pearly silver one.

The pink, organza bow was attached to the top left corner and a gemstone flower to the bottom right corner.

Many thanks to Colour of Love and Sheepski Designs for sponsoring the challenge.

That's all for now.

You can enter the C.R.A.F.T. challenge twice - we hope to see you there.
