Snow Friends Window

 


We have a new challenge over at The Paper Funday
The theme is Anything Goes with an optional twist of Give Thanks / Thankful / Grateful


We are sponsored by the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps and were able to choose an image from the store to work with. I am on a massive Christmas card drive at the moment and adore snowmen so this image Snow Friends Window really jumped out at me. Bugaboo Stamps is one of my favourite digi stores as the images really suit my bright and bold style so this is a dream challenge for me 😀


I wanted to make the window really stand out so had decided to decoupage the window frame. I printed the image twice and for the top layer carefully cut it out with scalpel and scissors. I coloured the frame and then added lots of silver glitter on the snowballs and then iridescent on the snowdrifts. This has been mounted on black 3d foam squares to lift it away from the main image. You can see the detail in the image below.

The bottom layer has been coloured with Promarkers and white gel pen for snowflakes.


I used a sheet of A4 white card for the base and added some snowball patterned paper from an old Papermania paper pack. I added a strip of self adhesive silver ribbon. I then made a bow from blue & silver ribbon. Finally I added a cardstock sentiment which was matted onto blue card for a contrast.

Card Details -

Size – A5
Digital Image Snow Friends Window by Bugaboo Stamps
Paper – Contemporary Christmas Colossal Pack by Papermania
Colouring Medium – Promarkers & white gel pen
Embellishments – Stickles glitter glue in silver & iridescent, ribbons
