Snowflakes


#NancyandJillcolortogether


Hi All! I have something fun for you today. As you know Nancy of Rowhouse Greetings is a good friend if mine. We chat often, sharing cards, tips, techniques and all the crazy things friends share! Like most card makers we need a boost, or mojo recharge and a kick in the backside when we get into a slump. Recently Nancy and I were both feeling this way, so I suggested “lets color the same image once a month and blog about it, sharing on each others blog”. Fun, right?! Go check us out on Instagram too, we started a new hashtag for our collaboration, #NancyandJillcolortogether. Nancy chose the first image, which is from Mo Manning (a favorite of BOTH of us!) called Snowflakes. This is a sweet image, for some reason it makes me think of old timey London. Now, on with the show and tell…


Here is Nancy’s version! To read her blog post CLICK HERE.

I chose my colors so that they looked a bit faded and worn.


I paired my image with some old music paper, to me it gives the card a Christmassy feel.


If you zoom in you can see the Nuvo Glitter Drops in Gold Coast that I placed on the falling snow (using a stylus) to make it sparkle.
