Five 'S' Words...

... is the current Pollycraft challenge! To enter the challenge you have to pick two from the five listed, but if you use all five then you get a free download image - fab eh! So naturally I went for the full five, which are:

Snowflakes, Sparkle, Spots, Stripes and Swirls

I've used papers from Funky Seasons and this is the Cold Snap collection. The stripy paper is one of the ATC papers that can be printed off from the extras. I've coloured the Pollycraft freebie image with watercolour pencils and have added glitter glue here and there and on the snowball.

The regal purple ribbon is from my stash and the snowflake confetti is too (I've recently found this at the bottom of my Christmas box so you may see more of these in the future!)
I've used the Cuttlebug d'vine swirls for the embossing and then lightly patted a blue inkpad over the top for more definition. Edges have been cornered and then inked with blue and then a very faded black.
Great image to work with too!
