the SCACD Holiday Inspiration Day

Winter Guardian 2014
Today is a special day at SCACD it is A Holiday Inspiration Day and several of us got together and thought we would use some of the amazing digital images Susana has in her store that the artist Carmen Medlin has done. The image I have is called Winter Guardian. When I seen this one I just fell in love with her but there are several I really love. Plus she is having a SALE going on right now. So stop by SCACD store and see what is going on. Susana also has a Blog with all kinds of inspiration on it.

Spellbinder grand nestabilities scalloped, I cut out several of the sizes. Folded them in half. The paper was from my stash. This is really not a card it opens up as you will see and you can hang it on the wall. I explain about the stickers below but I used 3 trees and 5 gifts and several of the stars.

I used some Brilliance ink color white around the edges.

I added some of Aleene’s true snow and a hold lot of Martha Steward crystal fine glitter. This is the project open up and the way it would look on the wall.

Here are some little closer pictures of the image. I added pear pen color ice white to the background. Some flower gems in blue to the trees. Very tiny white pearls to the button of her dress. I do hope you can see that it is a little 3D, everything is raised. I colored my image first and them I added the crystal fine glitter until it was smooth and them colored a little over what I already colored.

These are the stickers I used, they are from Starform transport glitter #3216. I put the stickers on white card stock and cut them out. The gift packages I put on blue and a peach color and cut them out.

This is stunning. I love how you made it three dimensional and what a clever usage of those gold stickers. I will have to remember that trick. I love your snow too with its pearl snowballs. All around beautiful design.

Donna Ellis said...

oh MY, Patricia! This is absolutely, sparklingly, incredible! I love all the gold highlights and the pretty presents around your angel. This is a wonderful scene! Thank you for sharing about your son on my blog. The people who say that "anyone would do it" are the ones who ALWAYS do it. You and I have lived longer, and know that it is not always the case. In addition, Fear prevents many of us from trying to do the right thing. And sometimes, we may think we are simply not strong enough to prevent evil from happening. But if we all would stand up together, then evil could not triumph. Thank you for sharing. hugs, de
