It's Snowing..... (well not really...)
I'm back today with my card for All Dressed Up... let me introduce this little guy who needs a name! The image is called 'It's Snowing' and as he is soooo darn easy to colour ... I decided to decoupage him too! All I did was print him three times... then diecut the first image with a square. Then I fussy cut his body to layer... and lastly fussy cut another scarf, hat, robin and nose.. but I lost the nose before I got it onto the card! Lesson learnt there for me... to have a tidy desk when I decoupage! So I resorted to Glossy Accents for his nose, and for his coal buttons too. After I'd coloured the image (using Cool Gray Copic 1 and 3 on the white snow to give it some shade), I used sticky foam pads to layer up to give him lots of depth... then added a Spellbinders Square Fleur De Lys behind the image shape. I sponged a pale blue around the image while the square nestie was still in place to give me that white border.
And of course, no snowman would be complete without glitter to show the sparkles.... so I used my glue pen and sprinkled loads of it!! The paper was one that I've had in for years... and the snowflake charm too... then all I needed to do was add the bow and the card was done.
I'm still writing my cards believe it or not.... I'm so disorganised this year! But my lovely OH is at work over the weekend, so I'll have a bit of time to get then done....
Have a good weekend all..
