A Snowman's Best Friend!!


Well, it's a rainy yucky day here in SW Ontario.........and I'm off until this evening, so I'm gonna PLAY!! Yippee!! There are so many challenges to do, some many stamps to ink up and not nearly enough time. This workin' thing is really cramping my style!!! BUT, my Mojo was flowin' when I made this card, if I do say so myself!! heehee!!

As you have probably guessed, this is the other Whipper Snapper stamp that I was able to purchase this past weekend and I LOVE it!! It's called A Snowman's Best Friend and it took a while to colour! The challenge on Sherry and Jeanne's blogs this week was to play with a stamp that has never seen ink before, so this one was perfect!! Also it's a start on my Christmas cards, which is Jen's challenge this week!!!

The sketch over at Julee's blog for Mojo Monday #4 was specifically for a bigger image, so this stamp definitely fit that bill.....this is a 6x6 card and look how big that stamp is!!! Not room for much else on the card!!

So I started by stamping the image on watercolour paper using Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink. I used my craft inks and my Aquapainter and this is the first time I've ever used this particular technique. It was much more like painting I think, as the ink is much thicker. I also used my Prismacolour pencils and OMS to do the black parts. Then I added some sparkle on the hat buckle and the jingle bells with my Sakura Stardust gel pen. The cardstock is Bravo Burgundy and the patterned paper is Holly Argyle by Provocraft. One of my other treasures this weekend was a Precious Metal Hardware kit in Pewter by We R Memory Keepers. So I used a couple of pieces on this card. There's a funky photo turn at the top and the round bookplate fits the Riveting stamps which I used here and I attached it with some tan gingham!!

Now like I said, this is my first time using craft inks to colour a project, but I think it turned out okay........practice makes perfect, right???
