Mo's Challenge #22

This week's challenge over at Mo Manning's Digital Pencil Challenge Blog is to make any shape card EXCEPT a square or rectangle - it can't even fold up to look like a square or rectangle!

I've had this gorgeous image called Siku and Shiya for a little while and had the thought of popping them in front of an igloo. I figured if I cut the card into the SHAPE of an igloo I would fulfil the challenge requirements for the week! I found this igloo image HERE after using one of my favourite internet tools - Google. I was a bit worried about mixing one of Mo's images with an image from somewhere else as you shouldn't merge images from different artists without checking with them first! I emailed Mo and she very kindly got back to me saying she had no problem with me doing this - THANX MO!!! I coloured the igloo first and then layered it onto some folded CS before cutting around the shape - this added some strength to the image and hid the colours that had seeped through - the card fold is on the LHS.

I've popped Siku and Shiya up on dimensionals and used some dazzling diamonds for some Winter sparkle! The digi stamp sentiment is from Bizzy Bec's. A fairly simple card but I'm really happy with it!
