On to my creation!

I have to say, living in Montana, you see these kinds of cabins all the time. This would be a perfect card for me to send to friends and family all over the world. Wouldn't you just love a hideaway where you could go inside, sit in front of the fire and watch the stillness around you? Ahhhh.... I would! This is one of Gary Robertson's new images called H1830 Cabin. Because Gary adds a lot of shading to his creations to begin with -- coloring is a snap! I colored this image up with Copic markers and actually just chose a light and a dark brown for the house, added some BG0000 for the snow, YG63 for the trees, accent with some glitter glue and.... done! The sentiment is an older one called Peace on Earth. I just punched it using a 1-1/2" circle, added some seam binding ribbon and... voila!

Here's a close up, you can kind of see the sparkle I've got going on here... thanks to some Crystal Stickles!
