Colour Create Challenge #73

It's Challenge 73 over at the Colour Create blog and the inspiration picture for this challenge is:

16 Jun - Challenge 73 - Mina - Blue, grey and white

which is to use blue, white and grey with an optional extra - vellum. The sponsor for this fortnight is Michelle's Scrapbooking and the winner will receive a voucher to spend in the store:
I decided to add to my Christmas card stash with a cute digi image -  Merry Mice from Di's Digi Downloads.

I started with a grey base and added a layer of white, adhering some blue snowflake paper to the bottom half and used some light blue ribbon to cover the join. I coloured my digi image with Copics and added some glitter to the snow and snowflakes. I then sponged around the edges with some light blue pigment ink and matted this layer onto some grey cardstock. I stamped my sentiment from Holiday Button Bits in Smokey Shadow Ink and also matted this onto some grey cardstock, tucking it behind my image. Finally I punched a large snowflake and heat set it with glitter. I then punched a second snowflake from vellum and overlapped this on top, finishing off with a light blue button tied with some blue glitter crochet yarn.

On the inside, I used some more of the designer paper along the bottom and stamped my sentiment in Smokey Shadow ink.
