No Snow, Just a Snowman~
No Snow.....That's a good one! We are about three weeks off that being true!
I cannot believe how awful the weather has gone all of a sudden. Last year the winter crept up on us, ever so slowly, not to scare us. NOT this year, it's just there in our face, and it can only get worse. Must admit that today was not quite as bad as yesterday, at least it stayed dry!
Today's card is not made using a stamped image, it's a die cut topper with decoupage layers. I picked this sheet up at the Harrogate show, just thought it looked different from the usual toppers, and I liked the soft colours. I have also got it in another colour too, I have made another card using that one and will show that when it is finished.
Not too sure that I have managed the sketch as well as I thought, but am pleased with the soft pinks, and I do like the Snowman/Woman. Do we say SnowMAN or SnowPERSON! LOL
The topper is by Nitt Witt, and I have used more "gcd rose coloured glasses" papers again, added some hobbyhouse pearls and the corner snowflake punch is a MS. The large snowflake came on the die cut sheet.
I have used some Frosted Lace Stickles on some of the white parts, and although you cannot see it from the photo, the buttons and nose of the snowperson are highlighted with glossy accents.
I Love Pro-Markers--Snowflakes
