Tomic Challenge 29 -Snowflakes Symphony in Purple

Yesterday was a NEW Challenge over at TOMIC and at the very last minute I realised it was my turn to play. I spent all Sunday making this for someone as a thankyou gift.  I really hope she likes it!
The challenge is Snowflakes and Purple. I know my Magnolia image isn't really a Christmas stamp but I was determined to use her as I just think she is gorgeous. She is called 'Tilda sending Love Letter' and will be available very soon. Those who have their clubkits will have her already.

I have made a candle book using the gorgeous Christmas Magnolia Papers. I even managed to find snowflake Tealights!

For the snowflakes I used Tim's on the edge Snowflake Flurries and Snowflake die and covered in Snowtex.

Again my rolled pine cones in Purple and as always Tilda is painted with DI's on 300gsm Watercoloured Paper.


If I dont get the chance to pop back on here again,as the next few days are sooo busy.
I hope and wish you all have a very Merry Christmas xx
