Anyone that knows me knows that there are three things that I absolutely love the color blue (I think the whole world should be in shades of blue) and snowmen of all shapes and kinds and glitter, I love to make things sparkle! These three things surround me all year long and make me very happy! When my sister Peggy, Colorful Designs, told me about a challenge that was made for me over on Colour Create Challenge Blog, Challenge 31 I laughed because she was right. The challenge this week is to create a card that's blue, silver and white and has a winter theme that includes glitter, how perfect. This is the card I created for it.
This snowman is new this year and I just love him. I colored around him with Copics and then glittered around him to make him stand out a bit from the back round that I colored with my Copics also. I tried to show a close-up of how the card sparkles all over. The back round isn't quite as solid as it looks in the picture I took my blender to it to give a winter sky look sort of. The snowflake paper on the back round glitter CS I made using my Rubber Stamp Tapestry peg stamps. I couldn't find DP that looked good so I thought why not just make my own! I stickled the flakes after I stamped it. I was lucky enough to find a piece of the silver mirror paper from a project years ago. The only bad thing was if you look a my photo you can see it does act like a mirror and my sweater reflected in the bottom at the icicles when I took the picture. I really had a lot of fun creating this card and I hope it inspires you to pull out a snowman, bring it to life and put a smile on some one's face!
