It's a New Year and a 'New' Challenge!

Hello Again,

We're all still recovering from the Festivities in our house and I have my crafty space back up and running so I'm here to show you my mid-challenge inspiration for the current challenge over at the Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog where the theme is a sentiment including the word 'New'!

The sponsor this time is Imagine That and they kindly supplied the team with images and I chose to use the Eskimo Friends digi set.  The sets come with lots of images and both pre-coloured and line art so lots of combinations to do and lots of ways to do it :D

Here's what I came up with....

How cute are they!  eeek!

Here's what I used to make it:
Images: Eskimo Kisses set from Imagine That Digital Stamps.  The two cute Eskimo's are line art that I coloured with my Graph'it Marker pens (pre-coloured ones are in the set) and I chose to use the pre-coloured igloo, but I then added deeper shading with my Graph'it Markers.
The images where then raised using Pinflare glue gel to add depth.
Insert: paper from my stash
Background: The sky is inked using Broken China and Milled Lavender distress inks and the fore-ground is torn white paper snow banks with white flocking added to the edges.
Tag: again, Broken China distress ink sky and torn white paper make the scene and the sentiment is stamped using a verse stamp from Inkylicious

Here's the close ups:

See...I can do minimal lol.
