S’now friends like good friends


The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Anything Goes.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

I thought I’d dress Snowman and friends by Crafty Sentiments Designs up in some bright pastel shades using Copic Ciao Markers to break away from the traditional colours I usually go for.Some Frosted Lace Stickles has been added beneath him for a sparkly,snowy finish.The background strip has been stamped in Versamark and heat embossed using white detail powder.Pleased at how crisp it came out as they were magazine freebie stamps.The panel was then wrapped with some fluffy fibres I came across in my long lost stash whilst I was sorting out.The sentiment was part of the freebies stamps and the same technique applied.The bottom of the card has been dry embossed with another magazine freebie folder.Yet another card for next Christmas 😀
