Snowflakes at Crafts & Me

For the Passion for Promarkers Blog Hop post scroll down or click HERE!

Its a snowflake challenge over at Crafts & Me for the next 2 weeks and I've gone for my favourite Wintergreen Wishes stamp again *but* I thought I'd try her with a more ethnic look inspired by the lovely Sinitta who's probably the nicest celeb Twitterer going :)
I've coloured her in promarkers using vanilla, sandstone, tan and caramel for the darker skin tone and the hair is vanilla, tan, henna and Umber.  I've added lots of sparkle with a glue pen and glamour dust and a sakura stardust pen.  DP's are a mix with 2 being from Bearly Mine Designs and the base one is embossed with snowflakes and is by Daisy & Dandilion.  Little text tag is from Stamping All Day
 which is embossed in Moonglow embossing powder.  Snowflakes are from The Works.

I actually did this design in pink, coloured it in last week then came to make my card today and its GONE aaaargh!  I searched for an hour and a half for it then gave up and coloured another one in which I didn't like so this is version 3 lol!  I think Wintergreen looks quite nice with darker skin :)
Hope you can pop over and join in over at Crafts & Me Challenges and also have a peek of the very latest artist Lemon Shortbread, whose range of stamps are being previewed this week x
