Here's a peek at what I've been working on lately. I know, I know, I'm stuck on this particular layout. All I can say is get used to it for a bit! I'm not big into snowmen, but this little guy is so cheerful it's impossible not to like him. I've modified the design a bit from other cards I've seen, but I was definitely inspired by cards on Splitcoast and on Valerie Stangle's blog. The base is stamped with white craft ink and the sentiment is done with basic black. It's not easy to tell from my picture, but I colored in the image using SU markers and then went over the brim and pom pom on his hat with a Copic Spica clear glitter pen. I've not found any in the craft stores near me, so I ordered my Copic glitter markers from Ellen Hutson LLC. After all the layering I punch pierced (I think I'm coining that phrase) each scallop to add interest and then attached the whole thing to the card using dimensionals. To finish it off I added two vintage brass brads.
Until next time...M
