I would love to have a huge snow blanket come down for the holidays. Just for when we're celebrating Christmas, and then it magically disappears. Skip the slush, the cold, the gray yucky mass while the snow thaws. Wouldn't that be perfect? I guess I can keep dreaming...
Here at PaperPlay Challenge we are getting you guys to think about Snowman. So feel free to bring your inner child out to play :)
I am using a fun digi from Mami Doodles that has been just released. It's quite adorable with the little birdies perched onto of the hat and the branch...
Stamps: (Snowman) Mami Doodles; (Twas the Night Before Christmas, Very Vintage Christmas) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Aqua Mist) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Memento - London Fog) Tsukineko
Embellishments: (Artists' Color Acrylic Series 1 - Titanium White) Utrecht; (Soft-core Color Pencils) Prismacolor; (Glaze) Sakura; (Green Sheer Ribbon) stash; (Tilda - Mini PomPom Ribbon) Panduro Hobby
I started off by painting the base card stock with some white acrylic paint. After it dried, I stamped off some lil grey snowflakes to set a background.
While the acrylic paint was drying I painted the lil snowman with lots of love and Prismacolor pencils. The sentiment and the berries on the branches have a little Sakura Glaze. The ribbon and pom poms are added as a little base to anchor my little snowman. I know it doesn't looks very straight in the first picture, but I promise it is in real life :)
Please check out what the other PPC girls have prepared for this Snowman challenge and come play along. After all, maybe we'll get our magical snow just in time to celebrate Christmas.
