Snowman Fun

Hi everyone and Happy Sunday! :)  I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend.  I have a new card to share with you today so I'll get right to it:


For my card today, I just had to ink up this adorable image.  It's called Winter Wishes Wryn by Tiddly Inks and I just love her!  I inked the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and stamped her onto Copic Xpress Blending Card.  I of course colored the image with Copic Markers.  Here are the colors I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Pinks: RV000, R81, R83, R85, R89
Black: C3, C5, C9
Shadow: W2, W4, Blender

My DP is from MME.  I added lots of glitter.  Here's a tip for adding glitter: spread Glossy Accents over the area and then dump your glitter over it, then tap the excess off.  The Glossy Accents holds the glitter really well and when it dries, it's extra shiny because the Glossy Accents leaves a nice sheen with the glitter on top.  I also added a ribbon and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts (I always use Scor Tape to adhere my flowers and bows, it works perfectly every time).  Here's a picture that shows the glitter a bit better:


What do you think?  Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks so much for stopping by and make sure to stop by 7 Kids College Fund for all your crafting needs.

Awesome card. Fab idea about the Glossy Accents and glitter...I've been using plain, dry clear glue...and will try the Glossy Accents on a snowman I'm working on tonight. Love the colors of this card and the layout is great. THANK YOU for putting your blog link on this post.
