It's also very cold and frosty today which is the reason for my title. Minus temperatures for the first time this winter and the sun is shining making the thick layer of frost all sparkly - lovely!
This week the challenge is a sketch which I've flipped so that my favourite snowman is facing the right way on my card. It's one of my specials and won't be going through the post as I think my faux snow would get crushed!
All the elements on my card including the cute snowman are from the Here Comes Christmas CD and I've gone for a non traditional blue and brown colour combination which I thought gave a more frosty look to my creation.
I covered my card blank with the blue paper which I distressed by rubbing the edges with an emery board to rough them up and the added Vintage Photo Distress ink. I did the same to the panel of snowy tree paper.
I made a faux icicle border which I hand cut from white card and then added glitter glue and faux snow made using a Deco Art snow writer.
I printed the snowman out and coloured him with Aquamarkers (my new obsession!) then die cut the image into an oval and inked the edges with the Vintage Photo. I added him to the card, sticking him so that some of the icicles over hung the panel.
I finished off with an inked sentiment ticket with a scrap of bakers twine tied at the ends.
Have a lovely weekend.
Hugs, Fliss xx
