Hey There Mr Snowman.....

Hey Mr Snowman, bring me some snow......
Our snow has been melting with our January thaw and I hate to see it cold without snow in February. I created this 'man stamped in Ocean Blue and coloured with W1 and BG10. The clouds are compliments of Mel (MelStampz) I was playing with her lovely techniques and ended up with this card. So the snow is acrylic paint on the BG paper and a Background Stamp stamped into the paint. I then stitched snowdrifts in.
The clouds are white embossed background stamp on water colour paper and stitched with the same embroidery thread around the edges. Mr Snowmans scarf has a beaded fringe, which I borrowed from Mel as well Love you Mel, keep it up, teeheee. The snowy swirls are all glittered too. The picture cannot do justice to the card :(

This little guy was coloured for last weeks Copic Junkies Challenge, but I forgot to upload him :(. I used BG01 and 09 along with YG 23 and 21 and a splash of R46 and YR04 and 06. Isn't he charming? He was a freebie from Dustin Pike. He is printed on text weight Curious Iridescent Paper. The BAckground.....Now I need to show MelMcCarthy my messed up background :)I attempted a Mel Stampz technique that went delightfully wrong. More on that later. Now I have to go to work :(

I coloured this image a month or so ago and never got it to a card until the other day. The image is a Mo Manning digi and the technique behind it is called Brown Bagging from the last technique junkies newsletter. I love this tech. and flipped for Mo's images, what talent!
