I May Have Lost My Mind, Day 2

So far so good, 2 down, 10 to go. Day 2 at the Bugaboo Stamps 12 days of Christmas challenge is love. Background paper from The Stack 5. I cut it out using my Silhouette and ran it through the printer for the sentiment. I colored my image using my Zig markers, glitter pens, and used diamond Sparkles on the snow. I used my chalks to add the glow around the star and to add the blue to the sky. Used a Silhouette frame for my image.
My lessons learned: that my chalk applicator can smear the printer ink if I press too hard. I thought I had heat set my printer ink but either that doesn't work or I forgot. And since I may have lost my mind, I'm going to go with forgot. I love the way the frame makes the image look like a family photo. I was very tempted to leave the image uncolored (like a black and white photo) it really stood out nicely but the husband said it need some color ~ which of course means glitter ;o)
