MOJO108 Snowman Sketch

I finally feel like I'm starting to get back to my old self when it comes to stamping. I haven't at all felt like stamping but this Mojo108 sketch inspired me to create this Christmas card that I totally love. This card uses a retired SU papers, ribbon and colours so I am probably going to try to create a similar card using the current in colours. I'm finding them really hard to work with because they are so bright and that's just not my style! I stamped the image in Jet Black StazOn ink so that when I coloured it in with my blender pens the black would not bleed. Once everything was coloured, I added dazzling diamond glitter using my 2-way glue pen to the snowman bodies and faces! I love the way it looks like the shine of the snow - you can see this much better if you click on the picture to enlarge it. I also added glitter to the top of the white brad holding the snowflakes.

The snowflakes on this card are SU little felt flurries (that were available last Christmas) and they can actually be purchased right now (for a limited time) at a discounted price of only $8.99! This price includes 69 snowflakes in three different sizes and 7-9 different designs for each size; snowflake designs in the colours baja breeze, riding hood red and whisper white).
