Hello there my crafty friend :) This week's challenge over at Peachy Keen is Anything Goes. I love anything goes challenges, but I have had noooo mojo all week, and I was going to settle for entering the birthday card I made for my DT challenge this week, but shortly after watching X Factor I decided to make a card for my son and daughter in law in there fave colour combo, and thought what better image to use on it but PK-328A Christmas Snowman mini. This is one of the very first stamps I wanted but one of the last ones I bought, lol! Sooo glad I have him in my collection, he's adorable!!
All the paper I used is from my stash so I don't know companies, sry, I have a lot of scrap paper I am trying to use up. I knew I wanted to use a pk image and the "Frostyville Border" die from memory box, so I figured I might as well enter it in this weeks challenge, if you enter every week your name goes in a draw to win a gift certificate for 30.00 to their store, who couldn't use some PK money? I know I sure could, it's a huge collection and I'm not even half way through it. Anyway, this is what I ended up with. :)
I used the two largest Labels 18 Spellbinders dies to pop my image on. I cut a brown one and trimmed off a bit on each side, then turned it side ways and pop dotted it onto the card. I cut out a white one and created the scene with a "tree" stamp I've had for a long time but not sure of the company name at the moment, have to find the tag that went MIA. Then I sponged some "blue sky" Martha Stewart chalk ink on it. Added a few swirls of glue and some Recollections fine "glitz" glitter for snow, also added some glue to the snow flake die cuts and sprinkled with the same glitter as well to give them a bit of bling.
I stamped my image, coloured most of it, then paper pieced his little sweater to match the bg dp. The fur on his hat and sweater is covered with "Ice White" Viva pearl pen. I used YG17, E33, B02, B05, E33 and E35 copics to colour him in. I used an orange sharpie to do his nose, the tip is so nice and fine, I just knew I'd mess it up if I tried to get into the teenie tiny tip of the carrot. Then I cut out some snowflakes from a provocraft 2X2 die, added some $ store bling and popped them on.
Big inky hugs and glitter wishes....
