Snowflakes at Creatalicious

Hello lovely blogging buddies.

I hope 2016 is good to you all.
So it is time for our new challenge at Creatalicious.

Happy Little Stampers was created in 2015. Kylie wanted to bring out a line of stamps that were useful for every day crafters. From cute to whimsical images, from everyday to funky sentiments there is something for everyone!

So for this challenge I have used an image from one of my favourite artsists: Ching Chou Kuik
This image is called Snowflake - appropriately. 
She is coloured with Copics and Spectrum Noir Pencils.
I am particularly happy with how the skin came out on this one.
I think I have actually learned something from Alyce Keegan's colouring classes at Kit and Clowder.
If you need help or just want to improve your colouring techniques then you really should pop over and have a look at Alyce's classes - they are amazing. Why not join the Kit and Clowder Facebook group too - you will pick up so many hints and tips.
I was so pleased with how this turned out I decided not to add too much in the way of embellishments and I think I made the right choice. What do you think?
The paper rose is from Samaflora on Facebook - Sam does make the most fabulous flowers. Why not pop over and have a look?
The other bits and bobs are from my stash.
The backing paper is from an LOTV pad called Frosty Christmas.
So, it is January and I have made my first Christmas Card for 2016! Yay!!  
I really hope you like her as much as I do.
Can't wait to see all your beautiful creations.
