D2D meets Ice Crystals

I played around a little tonight with Ice Crystals- a new Technique Junkies newsletter has just hit the mailbox…..  So, I made my weekly D2D (Designed2Delight) card.  This Friday’s image is a freebie- if you play along and post a card with the image, you get a free image for the next week.

The Ice Crystals most match Soft Sky/Baja Breeze and I wanted to have holly in the DSP, so I added a touch of Soft Sky to the DSP with a dauber. I washed lightly over the snowman with Soft Sky. I colored over the red heart with Creative Inspirations paint- and added a touch for the shadow under the snowman. The Ice Crystals are the mat under the snowman panel, the snowman and the middle panel punched with a Martha Stewart punch.  Here is a closer look:

Beautiful Shelly, the ice crystal technique looks so pretty. Great idea to add some coordinating color to a dsp, to make it work with the colors, I never would have thought of that.
