I used the same technique as Tim to make my background but I wanted to use crisp winter colours and rather then his background stamp I used a Visible Image crackle background stamp to create the acrylic resist for my ink sprays.
The paint on the crackle stamp gives a wonderful frosty feel by resisting the inks and the pewter gives such a gorgeous sheen.
Here is my stamped snowman
I coloured him with distress markers and inks.
I then de- and embossed my snowman and padded him up with foam. He took up a fun rounded shape.
It's hard to see but he has a nice plump shape now.
I then put on my creative hat and put my card together with some of my own details. Here is my finished card.
I don't have any cut out dies like Tim's autumn sentiment but I really liked the cork texture he used so inspired the cork I went off on a tangent. I used some hessian for texture and added a Tim Merry Christmas stamped sentiment. Rather than the rivets I used star brads in the corners.
I also used his adhesive foil around the edges in random strips.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.
