Mixed Media for the CCC!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are well and keeping warm. Is your weather as cold as ours?  It must be bad when Alistair puts his bed socks on. His poor feet are always like blocks of ice, years of mountain climbing in the cold weather has scuppered his circulation a bit, but it doesn't stop him from going up the hills in freezing cold weather.

Thank you all so very much for your comments on my Snowman card and good wishes for the concert, which, went very well. so all the hard work paid off. Our professional soloists were brilliant and not only did the sing with the choir but had solos of there own choosing.  So, now it's on with the rehearsals for our Carolthon in December and this time around our charity is Alzheimer Scotland, so I hope it will be a good day.

A warm welcome to Dimi who has clicked the follow button, it's lovely to see you here and I will be over to see you just as soon as I can. I hope you will pop in often to see me.

I'm a bit later than usual with my CCC card, but I was so tired after yesterday that I've had a bit of a slow day, but here I am now and this time its our lovely Mary who has chosen the theme and it's Mixed Media, here is my effort;
I've used a Justinklined image, I love this one and have used it quite a few times, it comes along with corners flowers. but this time I left them off.
I've stamped it all in blue ink, with a little yellow on the lamps. For the snow, I've added Knorr prandell Deco Paste and sprinkled glitter into it whilst still wet. The sky is coloured with DI and glittered. For the life of me I can't remember where the sentiment  is from, severe memory lapse, anyhow I've stamped on to velum.
You can probably guess this card is for my lovely hubby... I should have put, and slippers too, Lol.

Thank you Mary for a super challenge, I really enjoyed it and I love using this stamp.
Please visit the other CCC ladies and see what they have created, the names are on my sidebar.

That's me for now, take care of yourselves, and see you soon,

Great card Kate. Looks extremely cold and chilly1 John was just the same - nothing he loved more than being on the mountains in snow and ice. I think that's why he went to the Alps so much too - or was it just to get away from I wonder ... lol! I was very cross once when he got back and dumped his ice axes and crampons on the kitchen floor chipping one of the tiles in the process!!!!! Ah well, you've got to love them. Hugs Christine xx

Congratulations on a successful concert. I hope the Carols go as well. Your card is absolutely gorgeous! It looks such a serene and beautiful scene. I love it!

Such a pretty image, and love the glow from the street lamps. Gosh, the deco paste really added such a touch of realism to the snow, and sparkles beautifully too..Great card and will be perfect for Mr. Adventure. Love the use of vellum for the sentiment. Big hugs & TFS (and wish I could have heard the concert.Sounds awesome and the hard work paid off. What good charities you are supporting with these efforts).

Sandy said...

Stunning card Kate - the blue and silver together makes me think of the snow and cold of winter. Of course the couple walking in the snow helps with the image I have in my mind. The warm glow of the street lamps just sets everything off beautifully.

Hi Kate
Sorry I've fallen so far behind.
What a special looking card. Looks like you and Alistair taking a Wintery stroll.
Knorr make pastes? They've obviously expanded their range from soup and stock cubes lol!
