Happy Snowman

When I went into my craft room today, I just didn't feel like stamping :(  So I decided just to do a bit of Copic coloring and see where that took me.

I colored up a beautiful snowman from Purple Onion's Stacey Yacula range and once I was finished, I decided to make him into a card.  I went looking for a suitable sketch as this fella is pretty big!  I found this week's Mojo Monday and went to work.

Isn't this snowman and his little bunny friend just too cute?  I cut each layer with stitched dies.  For the green layer, rather than use green cardstock, I sponged some Green Apple ink around the edges to give some added interest.  For the round element at the bottom, I didn't want to cover up my bunny, so I die-cut a vellum snowflake, punched two tiny holes in it and threaded some green twine through it before tying a little bow.

Looking at the snowflake in the photo, I might paint it with clear Wink of Stella and see if that makes it pop a bit more.

Thanks for visiting.

Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Green Apple (SSS)

Charming! I love the vellum snowflake - it's so soft and doesn't cover any of the image - fabulous look!
