Building a Snowman


Paper: SU Bashful Blue, Brilliant Blue, Snowflake Dec Paper from Michaels, White

Stamps: SU Sweet Seasons, Stampendous Happy Snow

Ink: SU Bordering Blue, Versa Mark, Apricot Appeal

Accessories: Black Embossing Power, Heat Gun, Ribbon, Pom-Pom (for cap), Stipple Brush SU markers, Copics, White Gel Pen, Dimensionals

I read a blog last week that passed on a tip to pounce a stipple brush loaded with a light yellow behind a snowman to make it pop. I took that to heart and, guess what ... it worked. I embossed this image on the white and then colored it. I added the tiny pom-pom to the little boy's cap (thought that was really a cute element to add). I only used dimensionals on the Happy Snow element so the flat surface of the main image I thought needed the dimension of the pom-pom.

I hope you like my little card (actually it is a little card ... 4-1/4 square).

Hugs .................... Linda
