I have been chosen to be a Guest Designer for this weeks Friday Mashup Challenge! And what a fun theme, Snowmen! I must admit, I have no current Snowman images from Stampin Up! but I did find a retired one to use.
I love the inspiration photo they used, so very snowman! And that is what all of our trees looked like 3 days ago. I love it when they look like that, sigh... unfortunately that means it is starting to get cold.
I got some new goodies from Stampin Up on Monday and I just had to use them. One of the things I got was the Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink. LOVE it! It has a wonderful applicator wand that has a semi-firm fine point tip and is a dream to work with. I used it on the background and on the snowman here in Moonlight.
I stamped Pretty Pattern BG in Versamark, then applied Iridescent Ice embossing powder and heated it. Then I took the Moonlight Smooch Accent Ink and filled in all the petals. They look like snowflakes to me! And after I colored the snowman's scarf and hat, I filled him in with the Moonlight Accent Ink too!
I also used the Northern Trim Letterpress Plate with my new Craft Ink Spots. Finally! I was such a hold out on the Craft ink, but I am going to get all of the spots now.
