Okay, another of the sappy stuff how about another creation for Simon Says ...today, is the start of a new challenge and I am sharing a card made with some yummy Lawn Fawn and Hero arts, with some techniques thrown in for good measure.
So how about the technique first, taking some white card stock and an acrylic block, along with distress ink, Shabby Shutters, Broken China and Tumbled Glass, inking the acrylic block, spritzing the block with water and applying to the card stock, heat setting the ink and trimming around, I just love that technique. I created a snowflake background inking up the snowflakes from the Making Frosty Friends with Pool ink and stamping over the inked card stock. Adhering this to a trimmed piece of white card stock for matting and setting aside to work on the rest of the card.
More white card stock, stamping the snowman and hat and colouring in with Copics, trimming out and adhering to the inked card stock, adding the arms to complete the snowman. I then trimmed a piece of pool layering paper, stamping the front of the paper with the Houndstooth stamp that was inked with Pool ink and sewing around the edge. Punching a slightly darker colour of pool layering paper with the Binding Edge punch, adhering to the houndstooth background also, adding Stone twine to complete this section of the card. Adding the snowman to the background stamped paper with foam dimensionals along with a sentiment stamped under and adhering to a trimmed white card. To complete the card I added some rhinestones and Diamond Stickles below the snowman to create a snow bank.
