Let It Snow ... Let It Snow ... Let It Snow ...


While I was making my first DT card for I Promarkers the other day, it occurred to me that I could really do with some colouring practice, esp. with my new Flexmarkers ... so I practiced on several images of the cute Robyn's Fetish snowman that I used for my DT card. I also pulled out a stunning brand new pad of paper which I bought from Hobbycraft a couple of weeks ago - Crafter's Companion "The Snowman" -  must be one of the most gorgeous Christmas pads I've ever seen!

The result was the following three similar but different cards:






Stamps: Robyn's Fetish "Carl The Snowman"; LotV sentiment circles;
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers; glamour dust on scarf and mittens;
Papers: Crafter's Companion "The Snowman";
Supplies: white sparkle-edge ribbon from Hobbycraft; gems from The Hobby House; peel offs from my stash;
Tools: Memory Box "Snowflake corner" die (card 1); Martha Stewart edge punch (card 3); Martha Stewart "Aspen Snowflake" punch.

Challenges:

Paper Sundaes #97 - Winter Wonderland
Anything Goes #55 - Decorative or Altered Corners
Creative Card Crew - Monochromatic
