Sunday Postcard Art - Winter Wonderland

I loved making this vintage winter wonderland postcard and used the image of the girl from Art E Zines as the centre piece.
I coloured the background with a pale tint to complement the dress, and added a winter overlay by BarbarDerksen. This I duplicated three times to get a good strong white. I added a snowflake from Boyerville Scraps, which I coloured white, again to get a good contrast to the background. Finally for a splash of colour I added the santa hat courtesy of Bannerwoman.

This is so well done, Ann. You know what a big fan I am of the touch of red! That's a beautiful overlay, and you've pumped up the white just right. Beautiful!
