Misty Snowman

Well I didn't get much scrap therapy in yesterday.  It was late when I finally did get in there.  I started out attempting to do the challenge from Friday Mash-up which was to Create a project with a snowman and/or use their colors combo  - which would have been Blush, Twilight and Grey Wool in the Close To My Heart color world.   I had a snowman in mind I wanted to use but when I went to get it I couldn't find it.   I finally decided it must have gone to my sale box!  But I did find another one to use.   I decided I would use the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.   I had so much trouble coming up with something I liked using the colors from Friday Mashup.  It was late and my brain just couldn't get past the traditional colors for Winter and Christmas.  I finally threw aside my Blush cardstock and stuck with Grey Wool and Twilight.

I used Close To My Heart's Wonderland (X7146B) paper for my background.   I also used my spray pen!  I mixed Create A Shade Pearl paint with Crystal Blue Re-inker.   I stamped my image on a piece of cardstock and cut it out, then laid it on top my White Cardstock piece for a mask. Using the spray pen, I sprayed all around the mask.  Next, I removed the mask and stamped the same image in the 'clean' spot.  To finish up the card, I added a Rhinestone Designer Brad (Z1360) to the "O" in Joy.   The stamp set used is Winter Joy (C1468).   (All products are Close To My Heart)

Here is the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:

I'm also entering this into CAS-Friday because I used the spray pen!

Although I had trouble with the colors over a Friday Mashup, you need to go check out the other artwork.  There are some really pretty things with this combination!

Come back to see me tomorrow!  I'm going to a Cookie Swap tomorrow night so I'll be sharing my yummy recipe!
