Dynamic Snowman...


I'm enjoying a relaxing Saturday (much needed I must say!) and its time to share my card for this week's Dynamic Duos challenge...

I recently added the cute Snow Much Fun set to my collection so I thought I'd use one of the snowmen for this challenge...

When I saw the colours and dessert option I thought of stamping on Crumb Cake and colouring in with white pencil, so that's what I went with. I used SU watercolour pencils and was very happy to find that the light blue matched Marina Mist really well. I stamped him once on Crunb Cake and cut out with one of the Apothecary Accents dies then stamped again, coloured and trimmed around with my paper snips. I created some 'snow' by cutting some whisper white with the same accent die a couple of times and tearing three strips from the bottom, adding dazzling details and glueing the pieces to the bottom of the Crumb Cake panel. I then layered the cut out snowman over the top so it looks like he's standing in the snow.

The background is a top note die-cut in both black and Howlstooth & Scaringbone dsp (which I trimmed around the perforated lines and sanded). The Marina Mist panel was sprayed with Silver Smooch (you can't see in the pic but it has a lovely shimmer IRL). I couldn't resist adding a strip of silver shimmer paper cut with the large scallop die.

Make sure you stop by Dynamic Duos and check out the rest of the team's 'frosty' creations!

Thanks for stopping by...

  1. I love, love, love this snowman and all the layers you've created! I think my favorite part is the white pencil on crumb cake. I've never tried this technique, but I think I might have to now!

  2. Excellent glitter and snowman image Amy, so cute!

  3. Your snowman is adorable. I love how you used the colors, and the touches of glitter. Great card. ;-)
