Inspiration Station Challenge #21 - Winter Cityscapes

Hello and Happy Monday!  It's the 1st Monday of the Month and that means a new challenge has started at The Inspiration Station.  The inspiration photo this round is:

It's actually a picture of Westminster Bridge; a lovely cityscape scene.  I've intrepreted it in this way:

I've used 2 cuddly bears from the Lawn Fawn "Winter Skies" Stamp Set to create a snowy/wintery scene with the colors and snowfall from the picture.  

The background panel was created using Distress Oxide Inks, heat embossing snowflakes and splattering with white actylic gloss spray.  The images have been colored with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.

The images were fussy cut, mounted on craft foam and adhered using liquid adhesive.  The snowy hills wer cut free-hand and adhered flat.

We would like to invite you to join us at The Inspiration Station.  We hope to inspire you with our projects and would love to see how the photo inspired you.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
