Save the flower pot pretties blog hop


It was a lovely day with a gentle breeze making the grass wave, but all of a sudden black clouds and icy wind came out of the north! What could it be but an evil force coming to wreak havoc in the garden? It must be Frostbite, the evil villainess, and why is she freezing the sweet Flower Pot Pretties and bloomin beauties?!? Snow is falling everywhere, and the icy wind blasted open the doors of the green house! How can we save the Flower Pot Pretties? What can be done to save summer?
We must Hop! With everyone hopping and spreading Sunshine we might
have a chance to save the Flower Pot Pretties from Frostbite!

Today Color Your World is having another FUN Blog Hop combining the talented Design Team and the talented Creative Team!

Lacy Sunshine's greenhouse containing all the FLOWER POT PRETTY'S has been frozen by a magical snow storm at the end of August

I have used luna Moonflower  blooming beauty

The backing papers are off the frosted winter cd from polkadoodles. I have used a mixture of dies of which i know the large snowkflake is a noor die. The skates are a marianne and the deer. not sure about the tree's as have had for a long time now and the icicles. I used my favorite fran-tage around the image to make it look like it had been snowing.
All finished off with a bow and silver snowflake charm and  happy christmas sentiment.

So you don't get lost, start at the beginning

dt posting for graph'it markers

I have used Delores D'ammage which can be found here 
 The color palette works great with these kenny k images as they really take they bright vibrant colors.
the colors i have used are as follows
skin 4150, 4145, 4135, 4125, 4105
hair 5215, 5230, 5210 plus gold shaker pen
clothes 7270, 7120, 7145
boots 8280, 8245, 8220, 1280
background was made by using an embossing folder then using the same colors used color the digi i colored the triangles but then went over them with the blender pen to give them a shabby appearance as didnt want them to uniform and perfect. 
This is the color palette we had to work with which i thought worked great the image.
I hope you will join us this time at Graph'it coloring challenges
