Scatty Jan Wow totally how much fun have I had this week . I love using the Mix'it fluid its amazing almost magical . I used the lovely image Igloo Camp , also found on the Frosted Winter collection here . For the background I simple coloured over using 9205 (Green Grey 5) I covered that with a snowflake mask and spritzed the Mix'it fluid over, the edges seemed a little flat so I used a little piece of dishcloth a touch more fluid and voila! The checks on her coat were done using 3180. For the igloo after I had coloured it I used the silver shake'it pen and smoothed it with blender, my photos are not very clear in real life its so very sparkly.
Colours that I have used 
Skin 3120/4125/4135/4145/4150
Hair 1230/128/1270/3125/1210
Reds 3180/5220/5245/5250
Igloo 9100/9101/9102/
Grey 7115/7110/7109
White Shake'It

I have used the super cute Skater from the Hollybobs collection and went with the blues and ice coloured palette to make my card.
For the background I created a little winter landscape scene by drawing basic shapes with 3 different shades, I then added the Mix'it Fluid by unscrewing the spray nib and applying it direct from the bottom of the tube to make snow drops.  I also used my White Shake Marker to add more smaller snow flakes.  To make it easier I die cut a little circle to make my background so that I wasn't put off by looking at a huge blank piece of paper :) 

Graph'its Used:
Background: 7140, 7120,7101, Blender and MI Fluid
Skin: 3120, 3105, 4155, 4115, 4135

Kevin I had a lot of fun creating my background for my Carol singer image, Mix it Fluid is great for backgrounds. Claire C challenged me to create my project using this colour Palette.
As you can see I went a little of course but I did manage to get most of the colours in there.
