Dashing Through the Snow
by Nan

Nan printed Oddleigh Lizard Boy Elf out onto white cardstock suitable for use with alcohol markers and coloured him up with the following Spectrum Noir markers:
IB1, IB2 and IB3
BT1 and BT2

She then fussy cut him out.

Nan created this gorgeous winter wonderland background on a sheet of mixed media cardstock.  She used a variety of light blue acrylic paints and then spattered it with white paint to create the fun snowy effect.

The background was then mounted onto a sheet of glittery blue cardstock with silver ribbon tied around it.  The sentiment was cut from a decorative Christmas paper pad and layered on top of the glitter cardstock as well.

Nan edged everything with Salty Ocean Distress Ink and used adhesive tape to adhere Oddleigh Lizard Boy Elf and the sentiment to the background.  To complete her wintery card she embellished it with two tiny snowflakes.
