Ice Wall

I am so so excited this morning to announce I am now on the Polkadoodles Inky Pinkies Design Team, which means I have an extra excuse to play with Nikky's fab images - like I needed one - lol.

So, today I have created something special to share.

This month I have been learning how to create an ice wall background with the fantastic 'Create an learn' classes at Kit & Clowder.

Alyce really knows how to put a great class together that both challenges and engages you, with fab instructions, videos and feedback.

After a few abandoned attempts I perserveered and finished the class image.  I am so glad I finished it, but of course was not totally happy and wanted to try again.

Perfect time to use one of the beautiful new Frosted Winter images by Polkadoodles.

It was a labour of love and I nearly gave up again, but here is the finished project.

The image and background was all done with Copics and a little SN Pencil on the unicorns mane and tail. I added some silver gel pen to the unicorns horn and hooves, also to the snowflakes.  I also added lots of tiny dots with a white gel pen.

I added clear wink of stella to the fur on her cloak.

The snowflake frame is from the silhouette store. I then created an offset for it distressed it with tumbled glass distress ink, which I also used on the large snowflakes.

To finish I added some gems, little snowflake sequins and tiny pearls.

I really enjoyed creating this project and think I will add it to the art wall in my craft room.

Come and see what everyone is making and join in the fun Inky Pinkies.
