Still thinking of snowmen

Good Morning! Happy Saturday to you!

Actually I made this card to send to a friend. She said to try out this technique of putting alcohol inks on aluminum foil, then emboss it, then highlight it with black Staz-on Ink. Well, I don't own alcohol inks but my sister does, so she did that part for me. I did the rest. What do you think?


I am so pleased with the results! I used TGF's Keep Cozy snowman. I cut the starburst shape from Brocade Blue using the Cricut/SCAL. Then I punched holes in the spikes. I did a little faux stitching, colored the image with Copics and added a bit of white organdy ribbon. Voila! Easy card with great results.

I also made this with the current All That Scraps Challenge in mind which was to create a card with a snowman.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey -- that's a great use for my now-neglected black staz-on; it has a fun vintage feel to back this sweet snowman!
