Icy Hot!

Hey Y'all! This is a card I did for the Kenny K Krafty Girlz Challenge #28 which is Blue and White and Silver.

I colored the Lovely Jesse Jane up. She is colored with the following Copics:

Blues: B12, 14, 16, 18
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, R20
Silvers: C0, C1, C3, C5 and a little C7 in the hair

I colored everything from lightest to darkest, and then blended after that. I used crystal Stickles and painted over her hair, belt, buckles, armbands, hatband and shoes.. This left the color underneath, but a little sparkle in the light. Once I was done with that I cut her out and then added the white buttons and snaps with Enamel Accents white.

I used a Nestie to cut out the white and blue inner boxes.  After playing for a LONG time with Impressabilities, I decided I like them as accent embellishments as opposed to embossing things with them.  I did impress this butterfly in, but then I glued it in. I love how it looks. I then added the white Enamel Accent dots around the blue frame as well.  The white in the back was embossed with a Cuttlebug Folder, and then the corners cut off with a quarter of a hole punch. I mounted this on blue cardstock, and applied the white dots on it as well. As a final touch I added larger pearls on the four corners.

Most of my cards are larger, but this one ended up being 4.25 x 5.5, which is unusual for me! I was really excited.

Have a great night, and I will see y'all later.
