Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 290- Snow Much Fun
When I saw the sketch I knew I did not want to use a traditional circular stamped image such as snowflakes or flowers. I also decided to use one of my favorite color combinations- Not Quite Navy, Cajun Craze and Crumb Cake. With that, I found one of my all time favorite stamp sets, Snow Much Fun and got to work. I stamped the snowman on Very Vanilla using Black Stazon. I colored him in using reinkers and my beloved Watercolor Pencils that are retired. Next I cut him out (he was too big for a punch) and began making the different layers. I still had in my stash Not Quite Navy DSP and cut that out. Then it was just a matter of attaching everything. I also used the sentiment from this month's Paper Pumpkin.
My son is home for Thanksgiving and moseyed on down to my stamping room while I was making this card. He said he loved the color combination and the card! My day was made.
