Sweet Pea Stampers - 'Baby its cold outside'
Its time for another challenge over at Sweet Pea Stampers blog - http://thesweetpeastampers.blogspot.co.uk/
Our challenge this time is 'Baby its cold outside' I used Katerina Koukiotis's 'Home for the Holidays' and colored her with prismacolor pencils.
This is such a sweet image and with her rosy cheeks it does look a bit chilly outside :) The background paper has snowflakes on it and I used a ribbon with snowflakes and snowflake stickers too :)
If you ever wonder what paper I use to color - someone asked me this recently - I use Cryogen White cardstock that I get from the Paper Temptress ( http://papertemptress.com/ ) for the majority of my coloring, as todays is - my next favorite is the Neenah cardstock - ivory and desert storm (kraft colored but smooth to color on) also from Paper Temptress.
The Cryogen White is very smooth, takes color beautifully, doesn't bleed and it has a sparkly sheen to it that just adds a subtle pizzaz that I really love :)

All for me this am as I am off to spend the day with my Chief Craft Enabler as we make the rounds of the craft stores over in Pensacola :)
