Carl the Snowman

Wow where has the last 2 weeks gone????????  We had a fabulous response to our first challenge.  Thank you so much for entering.  It is time for our 2nd challenge over at Ditzy-craftymess Challenge and this time we want to see your Winter and Snowmen.  This fortnight we are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish who gave us a selection of her winter theme collection of digi's to choose to make our card.  I chose Carl the snowman and here is my project.

Recipe & Method

1.  Base card is 6 x 6 which I have added the back of a card that I had in my stash which has lots of little dots in soft grey's white and blue which reminded me of snow.  I have sprayed the front of the card using Crafter's Companion Spray and Sparkle in Silver.
2.  I printed Carl the Snowman off onto Super smooth card and using my Spellbinder lacey ovales cut him out.
3.  I have coloured Carl in using watercolour pencils and used Sepia Accents on his cheeks and Cosmic twinkles on the edge of his gloves and bobbles of his scarf. 
4.  Punched out snowflakes using my Martha Stewart snowflake corner punch in pale blue and royal blue mirri card.

Now it is over to you!  I look forward to seeing what you create for our 2nd challenge. 

Thank you for stopping by today

So cute, Linda! Like how you framed out this cute little snowman and the way you punched out the corner. It's going to great for an early start of a Christmas card or just a fun "winter" card!
