Bombshell January BLOG HOP!!!

Baby It's Cold Outside!
Well another month has rocketed by and here we are at the last Wednesday of January which can only mean one thing...it's BOMBSHELL BLOG HOP time!!!

Alison's theme this month:

It's time to announce the January 2013 Hump Day Hop theme! I don't know about you, but I am cold!!! That's why I decided to make this month's theme "Baby, it's Cold Outside." Make a winter themed project, use the title of the hop as a sentiment, dress your Bombshell up in warm clothes (or not!), etc

Here in England we've just had a thaw from a week's worth of snow. People in other parts of the world who have snow regularly will laugh at how little snow brings the UK to a halt- we're really not used to a lot of snow! 
So with the snow and the ice in mind I decided to go with the beautiful Koi from the Lotus Garden Bombshell set and created an icy pond.

I created a background for the Koi with Distress Inks, blending soft blue, pink and lilac together.
I coloured the Koi with Spectrum Noir pens LG1, LG2, LG3, HB1, HB2, HB3, IB1, IB2, IB3, BT2, BT3, BT4.
I cut out the Koi and stuck them onto my inked background.
I coated everything with a layer of crackle medium and immediately sprinkled on some DRy Rock Candy glitter. As this dries it crackles and shimmers because of the glitter rather like an iced up pond!
I covered some white paper with the crackle medium and sprinkled it again with glitter. When dry I used this paper to cut leaf die cuts from (I used QuicKutz Dies) I inked around the leaves edges with a pale blue Distress ink.
I mounted the Koi image onto the card and added the glittery leaves around the edges like a frame!

Here's the Bombshell Blog Roll:

This is amazing! What a spectacular image idea, koi in an icy pond. The white leaves around the edge of the pond really complete it.

This is just so absolutely, marvelous. I would never have thought of fish in an icy pond like this. I love it.
