Sweet Sunday Chillin'

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC111. I flipped the sketch to suit the image I wanted to use.

The last two Sundays I did springy cards so I thought I'd switch it up and go back to winter! In fact, I'm trying a little reverse psychology on Mother Nature! LOL!!! I've fallen a little behind on my Christmas-card-a-week but this one adds one more to my stash for Project Christmas 2011. This is card #11.

The image is Just Chillin' Snowman from Whipper Snapper. He's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto choice snow white and coloured with copics. I popped up the hat, sign and heart for dimension. For the snow I did a layer of white liquid applique and sprinkled on some glitter before heating it.

I drew in a little frame around the image, a la Jodi, and added three light blue Twinkles. I love this effect! The patterned papers are from Echo Park's Wintertime collection, paired with blue bayou and kraft. For the snowflake embellishment I used a combination of MFT snowflake die-namics and my Martha Stewart snowflake punch, then topped it with a clear Bella glitter dot for sparkle.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to go hopping and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers came up with.
