Mrs. Frosty Dressed for Christmas

     Time for the next part of the Progressive Challenge over at Sparkle and Glitter where Rick St Dennis' art is shown off so magnificently.  I do love his images!  This month we get to use any RSD image and I chose something that works for Christmas.  It's called "Mrs. Frosty" and she reminds me of the animated Christmas film for kids, "Frosty the Snowman."  Can't you just hear everyone singing "Winter Wonderland" all over the open meadow?

I started with the sketch from The Outlawz

     I colored the image with my ProMarkers and die cut it with one of my scalloped dies from Spellbinders.  Then I framed the scallop oval with a cut from a Spellbinders' framing die.  The sentiment is also cut with a die from Spellbinders.  I mounted everything onto dark green CS, then added the ribbon.

    I hand cut the holly leaves from CS which I had already colored with watercolors and embossed them with a stylus.  I punched out three little dots of red CS and added red glitter to them.  I also added a tiny bit of glitter to the rose on her hat.  Not completely CAS but close.  :-D

Hi, Connie! I always look so closely at your images - not just because they are cute, but because your coloring and shading is always so pretty! Love the green tones with your snow person, and the pretty blue shading around the snowy edges. The scallop die cut is beautiful against the green die cut. Your sentiment has me smiling, as always - so darling!

Now for my other hat: Thanks for joining us in the Scrapy Land Challenge! Hope to see your pretty projects again.
happiness and hugs,
{Creative Smiles}
