It's funny how when you upload a picture onto your blog, you can have varying results. Sometimes I am pleasantly surprised that it actually looks better on my blog than in real life and sometimes the opposite! While I was very pleased with my picture Let it snow (created mainly for the song challenge over at the Craft Barn, now I have uploaded it onto my blog, all I notice is the doodled 'beard'!! I doodled around the whole of the girl and I like the look of it but not when it makes her look 'gruff'!! Hehe, well never mind, one to learn by.

I was especially pleased because this picture started off as a humble gelli-print - lots of blues, white, red and pink - you can see the circle stencil under her scarf and all the white lines created by placing cardboard on my gelli plate first before I took a print.
Anyway, I do like her teddy bear/sea-lion winters hat with the white embossed bobbles.
The snowflakes are also embossed and shiny from the Visible Image snowflake stamp set.
....and Dean Martin's name has been added as one of the singers of the song at the bottom - this is an added rule of the comp.
