Isn't this card adorable! I took inspiration from the whimsical style, watercolouring, and general layout. Here's my interpretation:
Kimberly has a sledding snowman; I went with a skiing cat. He's watercoloured with distress markers, and the sky with two shades of Twinkling H2Os for a bit of shimmer. (I do find that when the Twinkling H2Os are used this dilutely, there's not a lot of *twinkle* to be found.) I used a little Wink of Stella on the kitty's ears and nose, Gelli Roll clear sparkle on the snow, and snow marker on the white parts of his hat and mittens. Instead of a little doodling around the image panel, I distressed the edges of the watercolour paper — I rarely distress, so it was obviously muse-inspired! After trying a number of different colours, this creamy yellow seemed to set off everything the best.
Even though the little snow we had yesterday is almost gone, there may be one or two more Christmas cards in the works before I take a SPRING break.
