Mojo Monday Snowman!!!


I can't stop playing with my Snowman from Christmas in the City!! He's just so crisp and clean and easy to colour!!! I'm entering this card in the Lizzie Anne Designs contest this month along with a few others I'll be sharing soon!

I stopped over at Poetic Artistry (as I do every day) and saw her Mojo Monday sketch challenge!! And you KNOW how much I love da sketches!!! I was also inspired by Julee's colour scheme on her sample card (Cool Caribbean and Close to Cocoa) and remembered that I have lots of Cool Caribbean cardstock in my drawer (since I totally stocked up before SU discontinued it), so I thought to myself, 'Self...that would be a great colour combo for my Snowman!!'. And that's how this card came about!!! And I'm so thrilled with it.....don'tcha love it when a plan comes together??!!

I stamped my Snowman on Shimmery White paper in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink and used my Aquapainter and inkpads to colour him in. I also made the background piece with the same paper and stamped two different sized snowflakes in Cool Caribbean and Close to Cocoa. Then I sponged around the edges of both pieces, matted them and then paper pierced them with my mat pack. I used some Taupe grosgrain ribbon and threaded it between the layers of the snowman piece. I used my new scalloped circle punch by SU for the first time and added the Happy Holidays sentiment from Riveting and pop dotted it. THEN I added my favourite part!!! You know how much I love da bling.....so I remembered I had some sugarcoated cardstock (it's totally glittery) in different colours and can you believe this one matched perfectly with the Cool Caribbean???? What luck!!! So I punched out two snowflakes with my Martha Stewart punch and added them to the corner. They look awesome on there!!!

Now this card would have fit for either the Theme Challenge or the Supply Challenge for my Pink Cat Contest!!! How are those projects coming, ladies?? I've already received some great entries, so keep 'em coming!!!!
