Mr Snowman

When I saw Tuesday Morning Sketches #118, I had and idea about which things to use on the card, but then completely forgot all about the sketch due to running around trying to make ends meet... until Claire posted her card with the cupcake girl - love that card :o)

When I spotted the three buttons on the sketch, I though of some newly launched shaking stickers from Panduro Hobby, that would be perfect for the snowman stamp from Simply Gorjuss - redid the colouring of the stamp a bit, but luckily advise from both Claire and Birdie was within reach as this is the first time I have tried to do something vaguely close to shadows..... still a long way to learn how to make the best use of my COPICS.

Ended up with this card, which my niece is going to get for her birthday in December.... just like her aunt, she loves snow and snowmen :o)

Love it! He is a great snowman! Think you should do lots more colouring, it's so much fun ;)

I'm with C! You need to do more coloring. Love the entire look of the card and your niece is going to be thrilled. Again, a little nuts like some others we know in love of snow but it makes the world go round. Also, you know I have to say how much I love the textures on the background. Great job!

Awesome card! I am such a sucker for snowmen anyway, and this is one is really cool! No pun intended. I love that you colored the sky around him, looks like it's dusk. The stickers are so neat, too!! Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Morning Sketches.
