Snow Angel - Sheepski Design, alcohol marker, embossing

The theme for April's Sheepski Designs blog challenge is "Wings". Looking through my cache of images from Andrea, I giggled when I scrolled down to Snow Happy 'cause angels have wings. I hope it brings a smile to you, too, 'cause there's snow-buddy like you!

Putting It Together

With the arrangement in my new room, my alcohol markers are so much easier to get to and use. I can decide to use them on a whim, like I did for this project. I am happy and might actually use them more.

I printed the image on Simon Says Stamp alcohol friendly paper and used mostly Spectrum Noir with a couple Copics. I then used Nuvo drops to embellish the coal and carrot.

While the dots were drying, I found a background paper in my stash and a die to trim the image.

I die cut too soon, the drops weren't 100% dry. I should have put them on -after- die cutting.

I decided to 'fix' it with another die cut. Smile! I also added glitter accents on the edges of the circle die cut to make it a snowball.

I cut 2 black as well as the sparkly glitter paper white. I stacked them for a bit of dimension and for the white smile to stand out more.

I embossed a friendly greeting below the snowball and added everything to a white card base.
