Tiddly - White Christmas #76

Hey all! Wow, has all of your free time been gobbled up by Christmas happenings? Mine sure has. But if you can, please make some time to join us today for our Tiddly Inks Challenge - #76 White Christmas! It's our last TI Challenge for 2011! Great way to knock off a much needed Holiday card maybe!

I have a confession. This wasn't my original't card for the White Christmas challenge. The first one, I went all out of control with colour so decided to give it another go. I'll save the original for the following week, so don't forget to come back ;D

Enough of that, meet Tiddly Inks - Lilli Claire - Warm Wishes. Being inspired by Dorcas Designs, I just had to color on kraft paper with Prisma Colour pencils. Dorcas colours on kraft cardstock like no-one I have ever seen before, she is phenomenal.

I did the fur and the falling snow with a white Sharpie paint pen, which made the white pop. I didn't use mineral spirits or anything such thing, just the pencils. I found that they were creamy enough to blend on their own. I have to laugh, this card displays every PrismaColour I own, I only have 10 :D DP is Bo Bunny - Snowfall Collection

Sorry for more die cut snowflakes, but there is a bunch hanging around my crafting table from earlier projects, so they snuck in.

Don't forget to check out the Teamies! Wowzer - you won't be disappointed.

Yes Dorcas is phenomenal but your image is spectacular if I do say so myself! I am always amazed at this technique but have never worked up the courage to try it. You did a fabulous job!

WOW, Stephanie! Your coloring on kraft is awesome! The way you've used those 10 pencils is amazing as it looks like you had a whole palette at your fingertips. This looks like it easily could have been one of the beautiful illustrations found in a children's book. Pure magic, lady! Hugz, Cheryl
