The Snowman!

Happy Wednesday all!
We're almost there!! Yay!!!
It's time for a new challenge at 
This week, we want to see a project inspired by 
Your Favourite Christmas Movie!
Now, I was torn as I have so many favourites but.....


Yep, I love The Snowman!!!
I also love all the old Black & White movies!
 I opted to go monochrome to reflect this!!!
The image I have used is called
he is of course from Dude Time Doodles
I've used him before on this card


I used a 5"x5" card blank 
The layout was the sketch from



The DP I have used was courtesy of Jak Heath.
She added these freebies to her blog just as I was looking for a B&W paper!
Thanks Jak!!!
I coloured the snowman with Promarkers.
 I liquid embossed the snowballs using Anita's 3D Gloss & some glittery bits
 to the snow & the snowman with my Sakura Clear Star pen!
I cut him out with a nestie & also cut out a matt of 
plain black to go behind him.
The only additional embellishments I added were 3 black self adhesive gems.


I decorated the inside of the card a little to tie in with the front.
I enjoy doing this as it's a change from adding inserts, 
it helps to balance out the weight of the card too!
Thanks for looking & I hope you can find time to play in our latest challenge at
