Well... if you've been along the Hop trail, you already know who the mystery NEW ARTIST is.  If you're coming to say hello to me (LOL!) and this your first stop, then read on........  Yippppeeeeee!!!  I can now tell you the exciting news!  The mystery NEW ARTIST at SCACD is Carmen Medlin.  Yay!!!  We adore her work and are so happy to have her with us at Susana's Custom Art & Card Design.  Thanks so much Carmen!!!

I am honored to be able to introduce you to Winter Walk by Carmen Medlin for SCACD...

Isn't she a beauty?  As usual, I've colored her with copics:  E49 E44 E43 E42 E41; BG18 BG13 BG11 BG10; E35 E34 YR21 YR20; E11 E21 E00 R20.  Can you see the shine on the dp?  Each of those cute little reindeer have a coat of Diamond Glaze on them!  The dp by Memory Box Tinsel Collection is beautiful on it's own, but I wanted to do a little more...

Don'tcha love the snowflakes?  They are Maya Road Chipboard pieces.  For the upper left snowflakes, I used Gold Inka-Gold (I know that sounds funny, but there are different Inka-Gold colors!) to make them nice and shiny.  After I glued them together, I accented the top snowflake with Viva Decor Turquoise Pearl Pen.

Here's a close-up of the image...  Can you guess what product I used to accent the oval?  You can also see a portion of the lower snowflake which is also covered with...


It's just like 'regular' Flower Soft, but has a very SPARKLY color to it.  You know how much I love bling anyway, but this product is especially great during the holidays : )  I also have it in silver lol!

For a touch of bling on her blouse, scarf and little birdie, I used Viva Decor Glitter Liner.  I basically just 'colored' with it, laying down a thin coat of glitter.  A coat of Diamond Glaze on her boots and she's ready for any weather!

Ooooh, more fabulous pearls in turquoise in the upper right corner as well as on top of the Inka-Gold and Flower Soft which covers the small snowflake.  Oh so sparkly!
