Snowmen in April
It's hard to believe it's been a year since I posted a card and almost as long since I've made one. Don't you hate it when life gets in the way of crafting?
Here's the first Christmas card of the year created for this week's challenge over on the incredibly inspiring Merry Monday Christmas Challenge blog. This week is challenge 103 and you must use a snowman.
If you're looking for a great challenge with lots of inspiration, Merry Monday is the place to be. I just love what the design team shares each week, absolutely stunning creations.
So I inked my card panel to create a sky and snowbank then placed a stencil over it and created snowflakes by just coloring in the stencil with a white pen. On a separate piece of paper, I stamped the Stampendous Snowball Fight with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with my Copics. After adding a little sparkle with a clear Spica pen, I fussy-cut the image shaping the bottom into another snowbank, popped it up using dimensional foam tape and my card was done.
Wow, it's easy to get out of practice but this was great fun. Thanks for visiting.
