There’s no people like snow people!

There's no people like snow people 2013

Welcome, Welcome to The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge and the twist for the week “shades of blue”. This is the last week for our fabulous sponsor -Oak Pond Creations. My darling image is  called Sleddin Snowman and if you click on the name it will bring you to him. So if you can stop by and see the other designers cards.

I've been an artist since the day I was born I just never knew it. As a child I always loved arts and crafts but as an adult I let real life take over and forgot about the important things like scissors, paper and glue.  I dabbled in jewelry making for a while then my friend Jeni introduced me to papercrafting in 2011 and later that year  I started sketching my own greeting card images.  In April of 2012 I opened Oak Pond Creations Digital Illustration Studio on Etsy. I hope my images provide inspiration and smiles. Hugs and happy crafting!

For the look of snow I used Aleene’s true snow, Twinklets by Diamond Dust and snowflake punches.

Wanted to give the sliddin snowman a 3D look so used foam dots. I love working with all these different mediums and it sure make a card a lot of fun.

I used material on my card for this week, sometimes it is fun to do that. I look in  the remnats and you can find all kinds of fabric. I use wonder under on the back and iron it on the fabric and them on the card stock, cut it with the cutter it stays wonderful.

Martha Steward Aspen Snowflake corner and border punch. Both of the sentiments are from Hampton stamps. Used distress ink color chipped sapphire. The extra snowflakes I had in my stash. These are the copic markers used to color the image. Sorry the picture did not turn out very good. Also used Copic multiliner sp 0.3 pens color cool gray, sepia and red.
