The challenge this week at Merry Monday is to use a snowman on your card - not too difficult when making Christmas cards, right?
I pulled out another old, old stamp to make my card. This one is from PSX - one of my favorite stamp companies of all time. I have many, many PSX stamps and will never get rid of them!
This snowman is particularly cute, with his scarf waving in the breeze and his birdie friends come for a visit. I stamped Mr Snowman then masked him using Eclipse Masking Tape. I then used more masks to sponge some snowy hills. At the top I stamped the row of trees from Lovely as a Tree in Smokey Slate stamped off. I then sponged some Soft Sky ink for the sky.
After I removed Mr Snowman's mask, I colored him using inkpads and a blender pen. There's not a lot of shading going on because the paper is not designed for laying down too much color. I popped Mr Snowman up on dimensionals and layered him onto a Soft Sky base. I then stamped a couple of tags and punched them out using the retired Jewellery Tag punch. A tiny little Baker's Twine bow finished off the card.
Thanks for looking. Have you checked out the rest of the Design Team's snowmen cards? Such talent!
