Mr Snowman

I’m doing well inking up neglected stamps. Mr Snowman from Lili of the Valley has not been neglected for long though, only a month or so.

Still using Magnolia papers – they are sat in a pile on my desk (cuz I was too lazy to put them all back after pulling them all out on Saturday – now it looks like a tornado has hit my craft room lol). The little reindeer started off life as a red and cream chipboard tree ornament from Tesco last year. They were in the reduced bin and a girl can’t pass up on a bargain now can she? A couple of coats of white acrylic paint, a light sanding,a coat of Tim Holtz Distress Crackle paint, a rub over with some teal gilding wax and a quick run round the edges with a Krylon Silver Leafing pen and it fits in with the card quite well I think.

The snowflakes are Marianne D dies coated with Stickles. The gorge sentiment is from one of Jayne Nestorenko’s Adorables sets from Crafters Companion.

I dotted some stickles around Mr Snowman so he looks like he’s in a snow storm rofl. I’ve used copics to colour the image:
Hat: C9, C7, C5, C3, C1
Snowman: BG000, BG0000, Blender, Nose R05, R02
Scarf and Presents: GB78, BG75, BG72, BG10
Twigs E25, E21

That’s all from me today, thanks for stopping by,
