THE PERFECT PERCH

Hey there, guess what time it is!  It's Virtual Stamp Night through Splitcoaststampers!  That's right, SCS is kicking off the mini VSN tonight with a couple challenges.  First up, yours truly!  The overall theme is "Up to Snow Good" and my challenge, Let it Snow-Man!  It's pretty easy really, just include a snowman on your project.  I know you all have at least one snowman stamp laying around, so blow the dust off and get inking!  Let's see what ya got!  Oh...the best part...you have an entire week to play along!  Whoop!




The snow-filled sky was created by using a toothbrush to sprinkle masking fluid onto card stock then after it dried, sponging it with London Fog and Tuxedo Black.  That awesome frame is a My Favorite Things die and it looks AMAZING colored with Copics!  The snowman and bird stamp is from Whipper Snapper Designs and it colors up super fast!  They were fussy cut, adhered to the frame then popped up on foam.  I wish I could show you the inspiration for this card...a tole painted snowman that I found on Pinterest.  I thought I pinned it to share, but do you think I could find it when I wanted to?  Not so much!  Ugh!  You'll just have to trust me that the grays with a pop of red was stunning!

This is such a cute card! It jumped right out at me while I was scanning all the card thumbnails. I love that red bird balancing on the snowman's nose. I especially like how you made that snowy background...a toothbrush? Genius!
