Christmas Light Snowman


I was a recent winner of the challenge at The Outlawz Sunday Songs & Rhymes challenge and was invited to be a Guest Designer on the new challenge starting today.

The sponsor for this challenge is KLM Digital Designs

With the Songs & Rhymes Challenge you are given a particular song and you can use the title and/or lyrics to use as inspiration for your project.

The poem this fortnight is Christmas Carol by Sara Teasdale

I was given a number of images to choose from and opted to use the Christmas Light Snowman  set. You get the image and 3 sentiments in the set for only $3.75 which is great value.

 I coloured the image with Promarkers and used a silver gel pen for the lights and a blue Sakura glitter pen for the blue light bulbs. I added some Spectrum Noir clear glitter overlay to the snowman but it hasn't shown up in the photo. The image has been matted onto some blue card to match the waistcoat and I edge this with a silver paint pen.

The card base is a large 8x8" and I added some patterned vellum from the Glittering Snowflakes pad from Crafter's Companion. It has lots of shades of blue and white in it.  I used the recipe of Glitter, Ribbon, Blue & White from C.R.A.F.T.  Challenge to make my card.

The ribbon is so glittery and some does shed when you work with it. I don't mind a bit of glitter so all's good ☺

As the snowman is looking to the sky I thought it would be nice to position him so he is looking at a fabulous snowflake. The main snowflake is  Flurry 4 which is a Sizzlits Thinlit. I saw it a few years ago on someone's blog and had to have it as I love snowflakes,  especially really intricate ones like this. 

The blue snowflake is part of a really old set of Die'Sire dies. The smaller white one, and the 2 pale blue are from the Frosted Window set by Crafter's Companion. I used glitter card to cut the white ones.

The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and I matted it onto a scrap of the same blue cardstock. Finally I added gems to the snowflake centres.

If you are not a member of The Outlawz I would strongly suggest you join the forum. There are challenges for every day of the week and 2 monthly challenges including a progressive freebie.
