Snow pals...

Happy Wednesday...we are half way thru the work week! I received this adorable image from a
wonderful blogging buddy and I want to thank her so much! She knows I love ANYTHING with a snowman image...and she hit it on the nail with this image! I had alot of fun with this image. I coloured with copics and with prismas AND LYRAS! I added some liquid applique to make some snow and just decided not to heat it, I thought it looked pretty good without heating it. I added a little glitter to the snow drifts at the bottom. Now the fun part...I just received the 2009 Holiday Tag Collection from Papertrey...saw some hanging snowflakes images and decided to stamp them right on my ribbon using there pure poppy ink! Then to finish the card...I really like to stitch around the edges!

  1. This is wonderful Christine! What a gorgeous sweet image and you've coloured it perfectly! Again, such simple lines to your layout make your image completely pop off the card! I LOVE the stamped snowflake on the ribbon - fabulous touch!
    I hope I can stop sneezing enough today to make a card - I've been so lacking in motivation to craft!! :(
    Enjoy another beautiful day of sunshine!
    Hugs, Danielle

  7. This is ADORABLE and so YOU! What a great image and you did a great job on your card, as always! Love how you did the ribbon too. Did you use normal ink on it? I'm always afraid of it running?
