Snowy Hug for 24th Inventory Challenge & Magnolia-licious Christmas blog Hop

Happy Friday,
OMG... March has come and is almost over... Winter doesn't want to let go! It's cold here in Montreal. It helps me no feeling too guilty to show my project this morning! It is our 24th Inventory Challenge, Christina & I suggested the use of complementary colors, which is perfect to accommodate my Chrismas card .If you follow Magnolia licious Christmas Blog hop and came from Corinne you are on the right track.

Bon Vendedi,
Mars s'est envolé, nous sommes déjà le 25... Mais l'hiver ne semble pas vouloir nous quitter. Ça m'aide à ne pas me sentir trop coupable de vous montrer une carte de Noël ce matin. Christina et moi en sommes à notre 24e Inventory Challenge, pour lequel nous avons choisi d'utiliser des couleurs complémentaires... donc rouge et vert pour moi, parfait pour une carte de Noël.Si vous suivez le Magnolia-licious Christmas hop et que vous arrivez de chez Corinne, vous êtes sur la bonne voie.

I am happy to welcome you on my blog. For my card, I was inspired by Snow Hug, this wonderful stamp with Tilda and Snowy which I stamped on Arches watercolor paper, and colored with Distress inks. I used LIquid Applique for the snow, which I covered with Stickles. It seems I will never learn my lesson: Stickles "drink" the color pigments of inks. So... I found myself with a tinted snow! I used the Winter NIght Background from the Winter 2008 collection, that I stamped each side of Tilda and Snowy, I used the Eclipse making tape to make a mask for my image( Wow, this tape is fantastic). I wanted to give the effect of a moonlight brilliance, so I mixed some Liquid pearl with water, and just spread it over the snowy parts of the scene.
Je suis heureuse de vous accueillir! Je me suis inspirée de Snow Hug, cette magnifique image de Tilda donnant un calin à Snowy. Je l'ai étampé sur papier aquarelle Arches et coloriée avec des encres Distress. J'ai utilisé du LIquid Applique pour donner une texture à la neige, et l'ai couvert de Stickles. Je n'apprendrai jamais que les Stickles boivent le pigment coloré de l'encre, je me suis donc retrouvée avec de la neige au reflet vert. La scène est un tampon Magnolia, Winter NIght Background de la collection Hiver 2008; je l'ai étampé de part et d'autre de Tilda et Snowy pour obtenir une image plus grande; je me suis servie d'un masque fait au moyen du tape Eclipse (c'est un produit que je vous recommande). Pour donner un effet de clair de lune, j'ai mélangé du Liquid Pearl et de l'eau, que j'ai ensuite appliqué partout où je voulais que ça brille.

My sentiment is from Nombreux Joyeux Mesages from aSampin up set that stamped twice in Real Red and in Always Artichoke. The tag is cut with a spellbinder, the swirl is from Magnolia, both in AC Cartdstock glittery collection. The beautiful Christmas paper is from the Jovial Paper pad from Basic Grey, a gift from my dear friend Christina. (Thank you so much Hon.) The bow and the green ribbon are from my stash.
Le sentiment provient du jeu Nombreux joyeux messages de SU, étampé en double avec l'encre Rouge-rouge et Artichaut. L'étiquette est coupée avec des spellbinders, et les volutes sont de Magnolia, tous dans du carton AC glitter. Le magnifique papier design est de Basic Grey, Jovial Paper, un cadeau de ma chère amie Christina (Merci!) La boucle et le ruban vert sont de mon inventaire.

I decorated the inside with all the cuts I did not use. The red cardstock is from SU, the glittery corners from a Cuttlebug die, the cute charm from my stash, along with the ribbon.
J'ai décoré l'intérieur avec toutes les chutes de papiers. Le carton est de SU, les coins coupés avec une découpe de Cuttlebug, la petite breloque ainsi que le ruban de mon inventaire.

I found that stamping the sentiment on a watercolor paper gives such a rich detail to the card, I used Always artichoke, distressed the edges and inked them. I also added little stones.
J'ai utilés du papier aquarelle sur lequel j'ai étampé en vert artichaut le sentiment, j'ai vieilli les bordures et les ai encrées avec la même couleur. J,ai ajouté des petites pierres dans les coins.
