Today is the day of the big reveal for the October Card Chain Challenge.
This is the first time I have taken part in this and it was fun to create something that I knew would be going to Robyn in Australia.
This month I used the option of the Fantasy Folk theme along with the colour palette option (I am not very good with sketches!)
(Oh and before you say there's no 'folk' on the card they were far too cold so have gone indoors!)
For my 'silver' I used Iced Spruce Oxide, my 'blush' was a combination of Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet (cos I didn't think the Spun Sugar was enough on it's own) and my 'frost' element is the ice on the tree achieved by white watercolour with a thin coating of Nuvo shimmer.
I did the background ink blending first then stamped the Inkylicious fir trees.
I then remembered that the Inkylicious icy tree branch is also meant to go on the right!
So I stamped it onto acetate and then pressed down onto the card to get a reverse impression then went over the outline with a black pencil.
The fairy tree pods and the little house are Lavinia.
I really enjoyed doing this - I hope it got to Robyn in time and that she liked it!
A beautiful fantasy scene

So glad you joined the Card Chain, Viv & hope you'll play again! Your fantasy card looks amazing - love the background and the little fairy village you created!!
What a pretty scene, Viv! I hope those little folks are warm and cozy in their houses! Love the snow on the tree branch! Very clever to use acetate to change the orientation of the branch!
Absolutely beautiful and so magical! Love the colors! I can imagine Robyn was thrilled to receive your card!
Your card is a winter dream!!! I'm speakless!! Just beautiful!!!
Lovely fantasy landscape, I love the frosty branch especially!
great Lavinia scene and your snow on the branches is amazing ♥
This is beautiful, Viv! I love how you used the soft colour palette to create a magical little fantasy scene. Thanks for being a link in our chain - it's great to have you with us, Jo x
Oh my, this sky is stunning and the "frost" is just gorgeous. It looks so real. Great card.
I'm sure Robyn will have adored this beautiful card Viv, and the trees and the little house and tree pods are perfect additions to the scene, and the pink and silver colours work well in the background. The icing on the cake..forgive the pun, is the wonderful shimmery ice on the tree branch. x
