Featured Stamper Challenge #144

I just couldn't stay away from a challenge. I just had to look at today's Featured Stamper Challenge. I browsed through today's Featured Stamper Christine M aka Chrisations.ink and I was hooked, I had to play.

I chose to case this card of Christine's.

What I changed:
Matted main image with black
Used ribbon instead of cord
Put sentiment in corner
Image
Used dimensional glaze, glitter and distress ink for edges

I just loved Christine's snowmen so I chose this cutie new release LITTLE SNOWMAN and IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.

WHAT I DID: I stamped my three front snowmen, then made masks by stamping three more snowmen on the sticky end of a post it note so it will stick to my paper for masking. Then I stamped the two back snowmen over the masks. When I removed the masks I had this snowmen party scene. Hee. Cute. I colored using ink pads and an aqua painter. Then I used distress ink for the edges then used glitter for the snow and dimensional glaze on top of the snow and the snowmen except for the bodies. It looks nice IRL. For the sentiment, I stamped it on the oval, then used a sponge to sponged red all over the edges then used antique linen then walnut stain for the edges.

Thank you for visiting me today!

Oooh what a fun card, Lisa! I love that little snowman, and I really love how you stamped him so many times. It reminds me of when I was a kid and we would try to make as many snowmen as we could. . .like a snowman family ;D
