This card was about ready for the garbage! I first tried to color it using my Prisma colored pencils. For whatever reason it kept smearing the black ink and muddying up the colors. I had stamped it using the Palette Noir. Didn't look good.....threw it away! Stamped it again, and then used my Copics. This time the colors were more vibrant....almost too vibrant. I wasn't sure I liked my color choices....almost threw it away...again. Then I had this idea to use the crystal lacquer in the sepia color. It muted the bright colors and actually looked pretty good. So I took it a step further and glittered all the snow! Now mind you this was a process that took about 4 days.....Finally when all the lacquer and glitter were added, I kinda liked it. So I layered, sewed and added this pretty gold glittery ribbon....and finally it was done! WHEW! Why is it that some cards come together 1, 2, 3, and others take.....4 days?
