Smitten Weather

...I mean mitten weather!LOL!! Today brings a new challenge from the Krafty Girlz at Kenny K and this week its a sketch from Donna. Yayy! I bet you didnt know I LOVE sketches!LOL! I did have to tweak the sketch a bit b/c I couldnt wait to color up Mrs Claus for this sketch. I mean come on!! She would melt any ice around!LOL!! Mrs Claus was released last week along with several other fabulous images from Kenny including an accesory set so you can turn in of your fave Kenny K images into Christmas images! Gotta love that!!
I resisted coloring her in the traditional red so I went looking through my dp for some inspiration and found this Cosmo Cricket mitten weather dp. I think she is rocking the purple outfit. I added LOTs of sparkle and shine to her too. For her eyes, boots, the bells and her lips I used my very much loved Sakura clear glaze pen. I added frosted lace stickles to all the white parts of her suit and hat. I added sakura gold to her belt and the bells. Then I added some Martha Stewart snow glitter to the ground and snowflakes. Be sure and check out the fabulous creations from the Krafty Girlz here!
