HOT Flashes!!!

Hello, I made this card for the Friday Challenge Hosted by Cindy Haffner on the Hanna Forum.

We were to use snow of some kind!Well I think it's time for a funny card! Laughter can be the best medicine sometimes. Hopefully I still have a sense of humor when my turn comes!

The Lazy Days stamp set, combined with snow reminded me of the commercial a while back, where the woman comes outside on a snowy windy day to turn on the AC! I can’t remember what the commercial was for, only that it had something to do with menopause & hot flashes!

The card base is blue bayou, with a layer of ruby red. The image was stamped with burnt umber onto watercolour paper. I coloured her in with SU markers, and then masked her so I could stamp the bricks. Then I coloured the bricks, and covered them with crystal effects.

The trees, SU Lovely as a Tree, were also stamped with the burnt umber, and I used a light wash of soft sky for the sky! The snow is covered with a subtle sparkle that you can't really see in the photo. I washed water over the snow, and then spread around the stardust pen with the water brush. Some areas are also covered with dazzling diamonds.

The sentiment was made using the justrite letters. My original plan was to have her surrounded by snowbanks, but then I decided I liked the snowflakes!

Thanks for Stopping by!
