Snowman in July

Challenge 134
S is for Show Christmas in July

Welcome back to the IKEsWORLD challenges :)  do pop on over to IKEsWORLD to join in the challenge, it is always so much fun and  Ike produces the most amazing stamps, everything from off the wall to cute and fluffy :) :) :)

You know when you get one of the those days when you just want to craft something, have a good idea in your head, have the items needed to create it and just want to have fun - this card was one of those lol.  I used the IKEsART Snowman digi (two copies) and for the second one I mirror reversed the image and made him smaller then printed.  In this case I also printed a second one on cheap printer paper so I had it ready for creating my mask.  Masking the image I then used Distress Inks to create the first stage of the background.  Next I coloured the images with Copics and added gold ink pen for the buttons etc. and Stickles to give a textured look on the hats.  Once all this was dry and masked the image again and stamped the greenery, trees, fence and sentiment.  Still keeping the mask in place I then sprayed the card with Crafters Companion silver glitter spray.  Again waiting for things to dry - I have such trouble with the waiting lol - I filled my time by using Distress Oxides to colour my card base and made my wee tag label, the scanner has not really picked up the text but it says, 'There's Snowbody Like You".  With everything dry I mounted the image layer and tag layer on gold card and then fixed to my card base.
