Tomic challenge 29

wow, time is passing my by so quickly and we have a new challenge for you on TOMIC "A symphony of snowflakes in Purple"
I gotta admit that i am just not a fan of purple, but i must say that stretching my limits seems to be quite good for me as i love how this image turned out in purple.
i also got to use a fair amount of glittah on my snow which made me very happy, i can never get enough glittah!!  All my edges got the going over with craft paint that i added impasto paste to so that once dry it would lose its dimension and then added all my glittah in layers over the impasto.
Images:  Tilda with Fir tree, miscellaneous fir trees
inks:  copics and memento tuxedo black
all the punched out snow flakes are various ones that i have had in my stash forever
rhinestones also from the never ending stash, as is the ribbon.
have a great week


  1. This is gorgeous, Paola! I love the sweet image and all the purple! Wonderful coloring and details, as always!

  2. That is so cute! Didn`t thought, that purple and green go so well together, great coloring, too.

  3. Stunning as always Paola!
    Love how you created the 3D look without too many layers, just using textures
    Super card!

  4. Stunning in purple Paola! I don't do purple well either, but you've really done a beautiful job with this card. Love how you used the Magnolia paper, which isn't Christmasy, but looks fabulous on your card. The snowflakes are gorgeous! It must be hard to make cards with snow and glitter when you're in the middle of summer! Wonderful job! Big Texas hugs...Barb

  5. So marvelous Paola.. I love your color Purple and I love that Tilda. You did a fabulous job on all the snowflakes and the trees behind Tilda. I adore the style and the layout.. A great card..
    Hugs, Jean
