And away we go!

     Brrrrr this card makes me cold, which isn't hard to do since I'm so cold natured, but I hope I've conveyed some winter frostiness to you.  It's the start of a new month of challenges at Mo's Digital Pencil and were kicking it off with one of our letter challenges.  This time around we want to see things that start with an "I".  I've used the adorable "Anyu and Nanook" from Mo's store.
     The edges of my DP mats and image are edged with Iced Spruce Distress ink so there's one "I"--ink.  I used a Memory Box die and a Tim Holtz on the edge die to cut some snowflakes out of "I"rridescent glitter paper.  For the top edge I used Glossy Accents and Diamond Dust to create some sparkly "I"cicles.  Had to start my coloring over when I messed up the sled, but I'm really happy with how this one turned out.
     Here's a close up.

Copics Used:
skin--E000, E00, E11, E13, R20, E30
clothing and shoes--BG53, BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78, N1, N3, N5, N7

You definitely captured the "icy" look here Tracy & your coloring on that toboggan is amazing! The snow just keeps getting deeper & deeper here. Poor Bill is out there shovelling right now. I just saw him out the window & he has icicles on his moustache...poor thing! I have a nice roaring fire & some hot coffee waiting for him when he is finished. It is going to -26C here tonight so we will need to snuggle up to keep warm!
Hugs, Renee
