One Stitch at a Time Challenge 125

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we're challenging you to limit your colours! So, anything you like, but use white plus one other colour (although you can use realistic skin and hair tones too if you need to.)

I got to work with a lovely, fun image from Hope Jacare which is part of the Frosty pack, and it definitely seemed to lend itself to limiting colours.
I coloured the image with Promarkers, and added some sparkle to those lovely Hope Jacare swirls using a Quickie Glue Pen and some Glamour Dust. The background was embossed using folders from Cuttlebug and Papermania, and I cut and matted the image using nestibilities. I did consider die cutting some snowflakes for embellishment, but decided that the embossing is embellishment enough (and it should let me post the card without having to go for a 'large' stamp which is always a bonus!)

Hope you can join us this week.
