Let It Snow....

Here's a card I made using Jayne Nestorenko's "Let It Snow" christmas stamps. These stamps are just the sweetest & I can't wait to play some more with them.
For this card I used some DCWV black card for the sky which I then stamped the snow flakes on to using some white ink & added gems to the centres. Next up came the DCWV white card which I ripped to create the snow mounds... I inked these with pale blue for some definition... the base colour of snow & ice is afterall blue. These pieces were then attached to the base card & tarted up a little by using a Sakura quickie glue pen & glitter. Stamped my sentiment onto some white card then mounted onto black and attached to my base card using silicone.
Finally came Mr Snowman... isn't he adorable...
I stamped his image 3 times... 1 for the base image, 2nd layer I cut out the full of his hat minus the black area from the rear of the hat & also the full of the scarf, 3rd layer I cut out the small front brim of his hat & the top layer of the scarf.
I left a small white border around him when cutting out which I then inked with pale blue for definition... again used my Sakura quickie glue pen & glitter for a snowy effect & used a small amount of silicone (only just raised) to mount him to the base card. Next up was the colouring of the hat & scarf... hmmm what pens to use I asked myself... as the sky is black I decided to use my Sakura Moonlight pens so the colour really stood out. Now some of the lines on the scarf are really thin so where I went over the line a little... I simply allowed the moonlight to dry & then I re-emphasized the lines using a black pigma micron pen. Once complete I layered onto the card using silicone.

A closer look at the hat & scarf.
Well I hope you like my card & if you are looking for new stamps this year I would definately take a look at Jayne's christmas range.
Happy crafting to you all
