"Will E. Melt" and Tagged

We are having a major snowstorm here tonight.....we should get up to 15 or more centimeters of snow by tomorrow. I'm not really lovin' this...cause I have to take puppy out to do his thing and lately he loves to take his time in the snow....but he sure is a loves to sleep under my table in my stamp room while I create.

I received a pkg recently from High Hopes containing the most Wonderful stamps. What a Fabulous day that was!! This snowman is one of the stamps I received...isn't he adorable?

I used the SC152 sketch to make this card. You can find High Hopes stamps right here High Hopes .

"Will E. Melt"

The snowman is colored with Prismacolor pencils (OMS) and Twinkling H20's to deepen the shading...but any regular cake water colors could be used to do this. Twinkling H20's are simply cake watercolors with mica in them for twinkle.

Stamps: High Hopes, Printworks.

Paper: whisper white, dcwv, basic grey, michaels.

Ink: versafine black, close to cocoa, creamy caramel, cranberry

Accessories: brads, cord, eyelets, snowflakes, glitter, stickles, scribbles for snow, ranger embossing pdr, oval punch, acrylic white paint for Spackle.

Wow, another gorgeous creation. Very interesting layout. I like how you have that thin vertical strip on the left, and how you wound ribbon around it. Your colouring is amazing, as always. How interesting that you encorporated Twinkling H2O's. I'm going to experiment with this technique. It must be a good one because your cards are alway so gorgeous.
