Hi my lovelies, time for another challenge at Midweek Magnolias, this week our theme is 'I'm Dreaming Of A White Christmas', you can interpret this as you wish, you can do white on white, or with snow on there, but remember you must have a Magnolia image on.
I chose to go for not much colour, and plenty of snow. I've coloured him in with distress inks, yes, I have actually coloured him in, took me ages too, I hate doing white, it takes me the longest to do. I've used glitter that I've had for ages for the hat, silver for the snowflake and black glitter (that I forgot I had) for his buttons and nose.
I've used papers from Pion's Silent Night collection, from the 6x6 range and from the 12x12 range too. The edges have been distressed and machine sewn using white top stitch thread. I've also rolled some of the same collection of papers up to make little scrolls, fastened two rusty 13mm jingle bells with ivory button twine.
The roses are from WOC, the dusty blue rolled roses, white chrysanths and the opal beads are all from the Ribbon Girl, as is the white pleated satin with silver lurex centre ribbon. There also a few self adhesive pearls.
I've followed the sketch over at Simply Magnolia, I'm entering this into the 'Blue Christmas' at Fashionista Challenge and also the 'Pastel Colour' challenge at Deep Ocean.
