Mystery Monday @ Club Anya - Ice Ice Baby

This weeks Mystery Monday Challenge at Club Anya is to create a card that makes you go Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr...... lol, something ice cold cool and beautiful.  For this card i decided to use Dress Up Anya, as i thought she'd look beautiful as an Ice Queen.  I used my coloured pencils to colour Anya, working lots of layers of blues and white to give a rich smooth finish.  I also used my coloured pencils to add colour to the background piece, snowflakes, and the edges of the white snowflake borders; i blended my colours with low odour spirits to get a nice soft effect.  I embossed the background and the snowflakes with a snowy embossing folder, and gave them a little sand to bring out the white of the paper and create the snowy effect.  To finish my card off i added pearls, in various sizes, some to mimic snow falling others as the centre of snowflakes.

I kept the layout of this card very simple, as i just wanted to focus on Ice Queen Anya and her beauty.  I love how this has worked out, amazing what you can convey using a couple of colours.

Thank you for visiting, and I hope you are having a wonderful Thanksgiving, whereever you are in the world :)
