Snow Matey.....

The new challenge starting today over on I ♥ Promarkers is sponsored by Di's Digis and we have a sketch to work with.  Pop on over to the challenge blog to check out the details.

For my DT card I was planning to use a great DD digi but sadly my printer just decided to stop working and nothing I've tried will make it spring into life.  Looks like I'll have to get some technical help in.

So, as I was planning to create a Christmas card, I thought I'd just go ahead but use a stamped image instead.  I found this cute snowie pals image in my box of stamped images and I'm sorry I have no idea where I got it.  I believe it is by Whipper Snapper Designs but it may be a really old stamp as I can't find it anywhere online.  If anyone can confirm this or tell me who it's by, I'd be very grateful ! (thanks to Paula I can now confirm that the image is indeed a stamp by Whipper Snapper Designs called Snowmen with Scarves, and as she was kind enough to give me a direct link to the stamp in her comment, I just had to hop right on over and somehow this stamp - plus a couple others - just jumped into my shopping cart - oopsie !!)  So you may just see these cheery little chappies appearing on some of my cards at a later date.

I coloured the image of course with my Promarkers then added Crystal Stickles dusted with Glamour Dust for the snow and around the edges of the image layer and the sentiment.  I embossed the background layers in my Cuttlebug using a couple of different embossing folders.  The sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly and there's a little Stickles and GD on the snowflakes in the design.  Here's a close up shot to show the embossing a little clearer.  There's Glossy Accents on the hat and their noses to give them some dimension.

That's it from me for today, I'm looking forward to seeing what you make of this week's sketch.  Just post a link to your entry on the I ♥ Promarkers blog and we'll hop over and check it out.

It is Whipper Snapper - #MY866 Snowmen With Scarves.
Rather lovely example of a snowmen - shall have to rememdy my lack of snowmen stamps. Love the embossing - a little question about I Love ProMarkers - are AquaMarkers legitimate to use to qualify for entry or is it specifically ProMarkers only. - Sorry grammar isn't very precise around 0300.
