Challenge #23 @ The East Wind

Good morning everyone! Hmm... mid week and what's been going on. Well.. we have the opportunity to lower our payment for the home we are purchasing, but that means stalling the closing by a week. The sellers wanted us to pay the amount we would be saving for a year. I'm annoyed! REALLY annoyed! We have been so fair I think. The home just appraised for what we offered. I don't know.. I'm just really annoyed! One week is all we are asking... before the first of next month. Just changing the closing date to the 30th instead of the 22nd. Anyway... that has been my frustration this week! LOL Other than that it has been a pretty good week.

Today I'm sharing my creation for Challenge #23 at The East Wind. And the theme for this challenge is Winter Blues (use predominantly blue):

For this image I used the no lines technique and I've colored it with my Copic Markers and Prismacolor Pencils. I used blue papers to go along with the image. I added some snowflakes, gems and brads. Pretty simple card, but I wanted to mostly focus on the image. I LOVE this image so much!  No decoupage on this creation!

Copic Markers Used:
  • Skin: E000, E00, E01
  • Ice and Crown: B000, B000, B00
  • Eyes: B00, V01 and colored pencil
  • Hair: C1, V22, C3, V25, V28, BV08
