Phindy's #66 A Snowman's Prayer
Theme at Phindy's Place - die cuts
The image I have used on my DT card this week is called 'Snow Buddy' & I coloured him with Promarkers, paper piecing his hat and jacket & the snowman's scarf (possibly purloined from his granddad I reckon as it is a traditional plaid, the 'de rigueur' of scarf design! LOL). Went for that heavy with snow sky again as you can see but I just love the effect. As for the all important die cut element of this week's challenge I decided to use the negative rather than the positive of my snowflake dies for a change, setting the white card layer above the main dp using Pinflair Glue Gel so that the dp would show through. The sentiment from bizzybecsstore.com is set into the centre of a Spellbinders die cut and a touch of Stickles hopefully adds an icy touch to this & the white snowflake die cut square.
For the inside I created an insert using the same design paper as on the front and also a sentiment from Elegant WordArt which I thought went rather well with the image. LOL.
Didn't I do well to keep that short & sweet today, but this gives me the chance to remind everyone that Phindy has a DT call on so if you appreciate her penmanship, do head on over to the challenge blog for further details. I have so enjoyed my time with them & I am sure you would too. As for this week, as ever, the challenge posts on a Friday and we would love it if you could join in with us using at least one die cut element. You don't have to actually use one of Phindy's images to enter, but if you do, you can enter your card twice using the linky - meaning you double your chance of winning!
