Snow Lady

Hi Bloggers,

Today I thought I'd share another sample for the Tatty Button Show on Tuesday. I've used the Creative Expressions Tatty Button Snowman stamp but he's become a 'her'.

I stamped the image in Jet Black Archival ink and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured the image using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I punched a few mini flowers out of pink card and added a tiny spot of Cosmic Shimmer White Pearlescent PVA in the centre of each one. The handbag was made from a Woodware punch - really handy as it punches as 2 pieces so fits over my lady's arm nicely.

I cut the image out using a Spellbinders Labels Eight die and carefully inked around the edges with Spun Sugar Distress Ink and Cut & Dry Foam while the image was still in the die. I cut a mat out of pink card with the largest of the Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles dies. I really love that set.

All the backing papers are from the Polka Doodles Sundae of Seasons CD except for the long panel to the right of the image. This I made by randomly stamping the bow from the Tatty Button Accessories 2 set all over a piece of white card with Perfect Medium. I embossed the images with clear powder and then covered the card with Spun Sugar Distress Stain. The embossed images resisted the stain.

I stamped the sentiment from the Tatty Button Text 2 set in Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I cut it out using a circle nestie and cut a mat out of pink card using a scalloped circle nestie.

I stained a piece of cream lace with the Spun Sugar Distress Stain and added it to the back of my sentiment.

I added a couple of Creative Expressions White Pearl Stick Pins and some square gems to complete my card.
