Smiley Snowman!!



I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. It's rather rainy here today....PERFECT day to stay inside and STAMP!!! Heehee!

Here is the second card I made using last week's SCS sketch. I made this one for Julee's contest over at Verve Visual, featuring the Thoughtful Phrases stamp set. I began by choosing my favourite smiley snowman stamp from Penny Black that I picked up at Stampart a few weeks ago. He's just such a happy little guy! I chose some Basic Grey Fruitcake paper for this card and chose my colours from there. My snowman is stamped on Shimmery White in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink and watercolouring him with my Aquapainter and SU inks in Real Red, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Bashful Blue for shading. I added some sparkle using my Sakura Stardust gel pen and matted it on River Rock and Old Olive cardstock. I used my Sakura Black Glaze gel pen and dotted all around both frames and also added two strips of linen thread and pop dotted the main image. Then I used the sentiment 'you make me smile' from the Thoughtful Phrases stamp set. I LOVE the fonts with this set and they fit perfectly in my Word Window Punch! And they are such a good price too!! Then I used two red glittered brads on either side of the sentiment and that's it!!

Check back in tomorrow for a sketch challenge to celebrate 40,000 visitors!!!
