DT Quixotic Paperie - Snow Day Lucas

Hi guys! Today I have a Quixotic Paperie DT card to share which features Snow Day Lucas from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I made this card a while back, for publication, but seeing as we're still awaiting warmer weather I figured now is as good a time as any to blog it. We do have a bit of sunshine peeking out today but I'm afraid to look in case it disappears :/

I stamped out my image onto Make it Crafty blending cardcoloured it up with copic markers and sponged the background with Tumbled Glass distress ink. For the ground I used a warm grey (W1 &W3) and added some Star Dust Stickles on top. For the snowballs I used BG000 and Stickles. 

My papers are from My Mind's Eye and Crate Paper Inc. I've matted them with red and white cardstock, from Papermill Direct, and added some cheesecloth and a white doily in between the layers. To cut out my image, and matching sentiment, I used classic circles Nestabilites. I matted my image onto a scalloped circle also cut out with Nestabilities. 

To embellish I added some paper flowers, a Cog Snowflake from Make it Crafty which has been whitewashed and then glittered, and some Opal pearl pen. 

You can grab Snow Day Lucas or any of the other Cheryl Alger stamp sets HERE on the Quixotic Paperie Store. 

Thanks for dropping by!
