Winter?

SORRY! This project has been removed for publication in the Paper Crafts Special Issue, Holiday Cards&More 2009.

I am not ready for snow, but I had yet to ink up, Made of Snow, from Papertrey Ink. Plus, some cute new My Mind's Eye Christmas papers, and you are stuck with this! :)

The chipboard snowflake (painted with white and with Star Dust Stickles) is from Maya Road.
The Heart chipboard is from Making Memories. It was painted with red and edged with brown ink.
The button is from Creative Cafe. The twine from May Arts.

The snowman's scarf and mittens were stamped on the patterned paper and cut very carefully.
Copic markers were used to color and shade.
The background is the Polka Dot Backgrounder set from Papertrey Ink. Stamped with WaterMark ink and several dots highlighted with Stickles.
The oval was cut with Nestabilities. One in white, the other in aqua mist. I drew a line on the back and cut the aqua oval. The white base got a painting of Stickles.
The red scallop oval was the Nestabilities again. I inked the edges with Canvas ink from Palette just to make it stand out a bit more.
Enjoy World Card Making Day tomorrow!! I will be teaching classes-should be fun!
thanks for stopping by!
