Marshmallow Snowfolk

 


How on earth is it December already? The last few months since I started working again have flown by in a blur.

It is time for another challenge over at The Paper Funday.
Our challenges are always Anything Goes with an optional twist. 
The twist this time is the theme 'Holiday Time'



We are very fortunate to have 2 sponsors for each challenge this year which means we get to choose which artist we would like to work with. This really is great as it gives us double the choice. We are very lucky with the amazing sponsors that are lined up this year, many of which are old favourites and some are new to me. This month our Sponsors are Polkadoodles & My Besties by Sherrie Baldy


I chose to work with this super cute image Marshmallow Snowfolk Doll 5 from My Besties. I love snowmen images and thought this was so cute.

I coloured the image with pencils and added lots and lots of Stickles glitter glue to the snow figures. The card really sparkles. The image has been framed with a navy blue stitched edge square die and then matted onto silver grey card. This is then mounted onto 3d foam to give dimension

I used a pink snowflake patterned paper from my stash and added a stripe of metallic grey card with embossed snowflakes on it. 

The large snowflake is from a pre-cut pack of shapes I bought years ago at a crafty show. It was cut from iridescent glitter card which has speckles of pink and blue in it so matches with the colours of the snow couple. To this I added a large jewelled brad from DCVW which I find very difficult to part with. This is going to be given to very special friends though so worth it.

Final touches are some little red gems for the berries and an appropriate sentiment.

I hope you will join myself and our fabulous Team over at the Paper Funday Challenge.
