Snow Fun

Hello crafters 
it's time for another Totally Papercrafts challenge 
I'm sure the week's are getting shorter!
Our lovely host this time around is Cathy (pop over and say hello)
and the theme is...


Now, I instantly thought of the Christmas Holiday season, 
but you could make your project any type of Holiday theme.
Check out my teamies fab work on the challenge blog
for some inspiration.

 Our sponsor this week is the terrific Karen's Doodles and I used their cute First Snowfall digi.
 I cut my background black card to fit my card blank and then made a patchwork up with the DP. I have lots of little scraps of paper, so this is a great way to use them up.

The image is coloured with Copics and some fine silver glitter and then popped up, onto a piece of dot embossed card. I also added a little glossy accents to the snowman's 'coal' pieces.

I found a really old snowflake stamp in my Christmas box, so I stamped it with silver ink and then embossed it with clear powder.
IRL it looks really pretty
and adds a bit of texture.
