Fashionable Snowman…

Time for another challenge with my fab teamies at Fashionable Stamping. The theme of this challenge has been chosen by Joanna and she picked ‘To Die For’ – so we’re looking for creations that include something punched or die cut but don’t forget that we are a stamping challenge so we do need to see some form of stamping on your project, and no digi stamps are allowed.
My card starts with a background sponged in distress inks over a snowflake stencil, with extra snowflakes stamped over the finished sponging. I stamped snowflakes on acetate and foiled them in silver which I then layered over the sponged background.
I stamped on the Snowman die cut and inked round the edges with DI and added some punched glittered snowflakes. Make sure you check out the wonderful inspiration by the rest of the team and I look forwarding to visiting to view your entries.
There are lots of snow/winter themed challenges abut at the moment so I’m sharing my card here -
Thanks for stopping by..Esther xx
