Christmas Kickstart - Frosty and Friends

Jo's latest theme over at Christmas Kickstart is "Frosty and Friends" -all about Snowmen


I had popped over to Digi Doodle Studio the other day to purchase an Easter digi I had seen and while I was there picked up "Joe Frost Snowman" with this challenge in mind....

I printed him onto some light cream card and used some Copics, Spectrum Noir and Altenew alcohol markers to colour him in.  I used Altenew Arctic ink to sponge behind him.  (just love my smallest makeup blending brush for getting around close to the image)  For my snow I smeared some clear Nuvo drops and sprinkled some SU Diamond Dust glitter on it   A few dots with a Gel pen and a Hero Arts sentiment and my panel was done.  I trimmed it, and then matted with some pretty Patterned paper from Meg's Garden, adding it to a cream card base (4 3/4" x 6" - just a little bigger than normal - trimmed down a 6x6 card base)

Thanks to Jo and her challenge, my stash of Christmas cards is growing.  

It's Saturday afternoon and all the house work is done, so time for some more crafting .... there are 5 family and friend's birthdays in May.... so busy time ahead.  

Thanks for stopping by.
