Good morning! It's time for another challenge from the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog...this week we not only have a sketch, but a color challenge as well...blue and green. I'm really glad I took a second glance at the challenge, because I had forgotten about the blue and green and had pink, red, and cream paper laid out!

Our sponsor this week is Stampfairy. I just love Gerda's images; her bears are adorable! The image I received to work with is called Barry Winter 1. I love that Lenny is paired with a snowman, since it gave me the opportunity to break out the glitter!

The image is colored with pencils and highlighted with a black gel pen and glitter. I added an embossed panel, some ribbons and a layered snowflake. The DP has a lovely golden shimmer!

Note: In the photograph the greens clash, but in real life they are a perfect match. I wonder if the iridescent paper is the culprit?

Image: Stampfairy Digital Stamp
Paper: G.P. 110, SU! Bashful Blue and Garden Green, Reminisce DP
Ink: Sakura Black Gel Pen
Embellies: SU! Bashful Blue Grosgrain Ribbon, Making Memories Brad, Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter, Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Polar Bear"
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestablities, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will hop on over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog to see what the rest of the DT has created. Why not give it a try and play along too?!

Thanks for stopping by!

This is so cute. Love all the glittery touches here. I don't think the green look like they clash in the photo, they look great to me. Love that snowflake diecuts you used too. Adorable!
