Good Saturday morning everyone and welcome to another great challege from Dynamic Duos! This weeks challenge uses Black and Marina Mist with a dessert option to add a snowman.
Believe it or not, I don't own any snowman stamps. There have been many I've looked at at loved but never purchased! I was surprised when I looked through my stash and didn't find one. So, I used the very thing snowmen are made from....snowflakes! How's that for a stretch! I started out with the negative space snowflake from a previously cut piece of silver glimmer paper. I hate to throw away any of that glimmer paper because you never know when your gonna need a scrap. I think this worked well, after I mounted it on a black piece I cut with my spellbinders die. I layered on another snowflake, from the retired Northern Frost decorative strip die, and then added the whole thing to a white scalloped square. I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch #171 for my sketch inspiration.
I grabbed a peice of retired To The Nines designer paper, and added a strip of black that I ran through my snowflake embossing folder, and voila'...I had my backround! I love that DP. I bought a bunch of it when it retired and have used it lots and lots!
The next thing I did was add the banner behind the main image panel. I started off with just plain Marina Mist, then added a little piece of more silver glimmer. I went back and forth trying to decide if I should keep the silver piece before finally calling myself crazy for even considering not adding it! I love glitter...I can't believe I even doubted adding it!
Lastly, I added the tiny Merry tag and an antique faceted button strung with some silver cord. I hope you like it! Check out what the other designers have come up with....everyone is sooooo talented and they are sure to provide you with ample inspiration!
