White Christmas Snowman

     Our theme in the challenge at QKR Stampede this week is "Snow Scene."   There are so many delightful digi or rubber stamps at QKR Stampede which would work for this challenge but I chose Digi 23501, Snowman Scene.  With all the snow covered trees, it just seemed to lend itself to a monochromatic green color-combo.


     I used my ProMarkers and lots of glitter on the trees and snowflakes in the sky to color the scene and layered it onto a hand-punched background.  All of that was put onto another layer which is now the card front.  The sentiment was printed with a computer font , then hand cut and matted, then hand cut again.  That's it; really CAS with no embellishment.  I wanted the image to be front and center without any visual distractions.

     I know everyone is busy with all the Christmas plans but I hope you'll find time to come play in our challenge this week.  You can use any image from any company but if you do use a QKR image, you'll be put into a separate drawing and that increases your chances of winning.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

I just love the scene and love the green theme as something a little different. So soft and pleasing to the eyes. I hope to see some snow next week in Denver. Still can't work on cards...it will be the 2nd week in Jan , but look forward to the moment. First cards won't be anything exciting but at least I'll be able to do something.
