Snowy Cottages - Craft a Scene Challenge

This is the second week of the Craft a Scene Snowy Cottages challenge.  The Spellbinders frame really helps to make it look like a scene out a living room window.

My card uses A Snowy Mailbox as the central image.  I colored the sky with PanPastels and the rest of the image with Copics. A white gel pen helped to add the highlights of snow.

Card Recipe
Paper: SU Garden Green, Kaiser Kraft
Markers/Ink: PanPastels, Copics, Gel Pen
Embellishments: Spellbinders Floral Ovals, Prima pins and pearls, Really Reasonable Ribbon, Stickles (on the path)

Challenges for this card:

Be sure and take a look at what the wonderful Craft a Scene design team has come up with for your inspiration. 

Have a Great Sunday!

Your project is lovely. Image is just perfect for this winter - we have lots of snow here in SLovenia :-)

Happy to read your post. Hugs from Slovenia.
