The Snowman

A card for an SCS challenge to make a card featuring a Snowman. I used my Stamps Happen 'Snowman and Friends' stamp bought just before Christmas last year and which I didn't really get the chance to use in time. It's a huge stamp but works really well with Versafine ink. I've water coloured with Ranger distress inks and highlighted the snowflakes with a white gel pen. The image is loaded with stickles in various colours but unfortunately it doesn't show up much in the picture. I matted the image on white and stuck to a black card which I'd embossed in a diagonal criss cross pattern on my scoreboard. The sentiment is matted on the black card and mounted on dimension tape.
I dotted different coloured gems in the centre of the whole diamond shapes that showed outside the image and sentiment. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris
