A Winter's Day ~ Craftitude Challenge 57

Well, that fortnight certainly flew by quickly! It's time for the new challenge at Craftitude where the themes this time are Anything Goes (always) or I See Fluffy. The fluffy can be something in your image like snow, an animal. clouds etc. or an embellishment like fuzzy ribbon or Flower Soft, for example. Our wonderful sponsor this time is Delicious Doodles where we found some amazing images, as usual. I chose this beautiful scene called A Robin's Christmas which I coloured with my Prismacolor pencils. I chose to play down the Christmas elements a little since it is long over but loved the details in this image. The tree was given white half pearl decorations...maybe they are perfect little snowballs made by winter fairies :) The sky was coloured with Broken China Distress ink applied with a blending tool.

I purposely sized the digi smaller so that I could mat it with black to provide a contrasting frame and yet still be 2.5 x 3.5"...a true atc. I added a metal snowflake with a silver brad to the top right corner to balance out the shine from the pearls and the heaviness in the bottom left corner.

Thanks for popping by today. We have had super cold weather lately bu gorgeous sunshine...there's nothing prettier than a snowy sunshiny winter day, especially if you are warm and crafting Hope you are, too! Be sure to pop by the Craftitude blog to check out the lovely responses to the AG/I See Fluffy Challenge by own wonderful DT. We'd love to have you join us.

Digi Haven ~ Snow Buddies
Emerald Faeries Challenges ~ #51 Things With Wings
Emergency Crafters ~ January Cold (blue or snowflake)
