Snowman Blues

    Back to cards for Christmas this week. This happy little snowman is a stamp from the Tatty Button range by Creative Expressions.  He was stamped on to plain white card in black Archival Ink, then masked with a sticky note while the background was made using a torn piece of paper and Distress Ink Broken China.
   The image is cut out with a Spellbinder die - Labels Seventeen, as was the turquoise mirri card that is behind it. The image is mounted on foam pads but the mirri card is flush to the patterned paper that covers the front of a white card blank. The snowman's hat, scarf and nose are coloured with Cosmic Shimmer Drawing Inks, they do have a lovely mica shine that unfortunately doesn't show well in the photo.
    There is a strip of dark turquoise ribbon across the lower front of the card as well as a clear gem in each corner. The greeting is die cut using Britannia Word Dies and white pearl card.
    I would like to enter my snowman in the following challenges :
