Tatty Button Snowman

Hi Bloggers.

Today I have a card made with the Tatty Button Snowman stamp from Creative Expressions.

I'm entering this card into the Friday Sketch Challenge this week.

The snowman was stamped with Jet Black Archival ink and quickly embossed with clear powder. I coloured him in with Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks - I used Dark Spice, Marigold, Blue Lace, Blue Cotton and Black Night. I cut the image out using the largest of the Spellbinders Twenty Three dies and inked around the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink using Cut & Dry Foam. I cut out a faux nestie in contrasting card.

I made the snowflakes using the Spellbinders Create A Flake dies. I cut some borders using a Spellbinders Parisian Accents die. The sentiment was made using my label maker.

The papers are from the Polka Doodles Sundae of Seasons CD.

The card was assembled onto a 6" x 6" card blank as per the sketch.

Hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by.
