Winter Fun

It's Time for a Crafty Ho Challenge

February 20 - 26

Theme: Photo Inspiration and OPTIONAL Sketch

Here's my card:

Here's the Photo to inspire us:

Crafters can use anything they want from the photo to inspire their creation. For my card, I used with the color blue and the snow.

The optional sketch:

Obviously, I tweaked the sketch for my own creation. ;)

The three trees replace the three vertical bars. The snowman, though somewhat round, is not a circle/oval. I also went with a 5 1/2" square card instead of a rectangular one.

The following picture shows some of the layers. I used four layers of torn white paper, to represent the snowy hillside. I also popped the snowman and his snowballs up off the surface of the card.

Images: A Chemistry with Paper Winter Fun
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Brown, Versafine Onyx Black, and Copic markers
Cardstock: Stampin' UP! Bashful Blue and all others from my scrap file
