Ice Queen Freebie

Christmas is sneaking up and I got pondering about what I could create with a wintery theme.  I decided to do an Ice Queen.  You can find her in my Etsy shop.  BUT if you're lucky enough you'll be able to grab her as a FREEBIE if you follow Alyce's instructions over at Kit and Clowder :D
I've created a card with lots of my favourite elements for your inspiration.

The image was coloured with ProMarers and polychromos pencils to get the extra detail.

After colouring her I cut her out with a Spellbinders die. The edges were distressed with Vintage photo ink from Tim Holtz.  I then scattered two colours of embossing enamel onto the background around the image and applied my heat gun.

I've used a shaped card as my base and cut some Maja Design paper to overlay it.

On top of this are design papers from First Edition.  All the design papers were distressed.

There's a mixture of white flowers to add to the wintery feel and some pearl embellishments which are actually from the wedding section in Hobby Craft.
I've added a love sentiment from Scrapiniec simply because I love hearts.

You may be able to see some tiny stars scattered all over the card / image.  These are left overs from a Spellbinders label die.

And my final embellishment a few pearl gems.

Hope you like my inspiration and thanks for visiting, hope you manage to grab her as a freebie
