Homespun Tilda

Hello everyone! Today at Make It Colourful our challenge for the next two weeks is to color snow. Zoe has just released some more Winter/Holiday themed scenic images. These images are just gorgeous and will combine beautifully with so many other stamp lines.  Today I combined Gift Way with this sweet Magnolia.

 Homespun Tilda is from the 2007 Magnolia's Winter/Christmas line. I love all the new images Magnolia has coming out but I do like to revisit these sweet whimsical old fashioned Tildas too.   If you have any, you should pull them out - I bet you'll fall in love with them again like I did.

So the colors I used to color my snow with are C1, C00, BG0000. Mainly, those colors were used in the shadows. I think I will try using a slightly darker shade of gray and blue as the color seems to fade a bit when you photograph it.
Well thanks for visiting today and I hope you will join us at Make It Colourful for this challenge. Remember ** our challenges now run for 2 weeks so you have plenty of time to join us. See you there!
