ice queen

I had a day off today to cheer on my son who had his first fieldrun today, the rest of the day I had some me time in the studio, which is something rare. So I sat down and created this


When I read this week 's instructions for the Craft Barn challenge here I immediately knew I wanted to use my Julie Nutting princess stamp. She would become an ice queen or perhaps the wife of Santa Claus. I stamped her twice, once on a piece of scap paper with skin tones and once on patterned paper  (with snowflakes) which would become her dress. I used posca paintmarkers to color her hair, crown and gloves. 


The background is colored with blue gel sticks, some stamping with purple and pink brilliance ink and some spattering with white acrylic paint. 
I stamped a balloon sled in one corner and in the other heat embossed the words vintage christmas time.
Thank you for taking the time to stop bye.
