My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Creatively Artsy is my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

Another Smiley Snowman - SC307



There's just something about this image that I can't get away from. He just makes me smile.

I played along with the Splitcoast Stampers sketch challenge from yesterday.

The Digi Image is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and is called Smiley Snowman. There is also a Clear Stamp version of this also and comes with sentiments.

I love using the chunky Diamond Dust on my snowmen. This product is so sparkly but yet doesn't cover up all of the linework.
The snow is a combination of liquid Applique, faux flower Soft and Fine glitter. I sponged blue chalk on the background, then dotted it with white liquid applique and heated it.

I used som old Basic Grey papers.
The snowflakes are die cuts from A Spellbinders Die mand then I coated them with glitter. You can never have too much glitter for wintere of Christmas cards.

The Hand Stitching was done with White Embroidery Floss in my snowflake pattern.

Other Challenge Blogs this card was made for:
Speedy the Cat's Friends - Snowflakes
ABC Christmas Challenge - X is for Christmas
