OSAAT #185 - Winter Wonderland

This week's theme over at One Stitch at a Time is Winter Wonderland. I chose the image 'Humphrey Horse' by Barbara Jensen over at Stitchybear Digi Outlet.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers (and added a little Sakura to his mane and tail to make it look as if they were frosty!) and cut round Humphrey leaving a narrow white border. My card blank is a large square by Joanna Sheen. The backing paper is from a Papermania pack and the grey card is by Papermill. I used a sheet of silver card, sorry no idea where I got this one from, and cut a strip of icicles - well, that's what they're supposed to be. lol I added some silver snowflakes cut with a Hobbycraft giant punch. Poor Humphrey is sitting in some Floracraft's Diamond Dust. This is to give the impression that he's sitting on the ice, bless him. I generated the sentiment on the computer and added that as a speech bubble.

The prizes can be checked out on the OSAAT challenge blog.
