Tuesday Throwdown #177: Snowman Fun

Woohoo! The Tuesday Throwdown gang is back! Have you missed us? Judging from the number of entries we've had in our last challenge, I'd say very much so! Well, fret no more, my friends. We are back!

This week we are continuing the winter theme. Sure, Christmas is over, but have you seen the amount of snow and ice outside. Well, what are you waiting for? Let's make the best of this polar vortex and have some SNOWMAN FUN.

This week, the good folks at Robyn's Fetish have graciously and generously given the DT a few gorgeous digis to play with. For my card, I chose this chubby little fella called "Snow Days Are Fun". It's an all purpose, any occasion card.... meaning I haven't yet decided what to do with it. But it was such a treat to make.

Keeping the colours simple, I've gone with blues and reds. This card is all about the chubby little guy, so no fancy patterned papers or layering etc. I embossed the background with Darice Snowflakes folder and very lightly, I stamped teeny tiny snowflakes in the spaces between and around the image. I used VersaMagic Baby Blue Chalk Ink.

Here's a closer look at the not-so-little guy. I coloured him with Promarkers and cut and layered with SB Oval and Scalloped Oval die. Then I dotted around with Blue Liquid Pearls, and tied a bow with red and blue twine.

How about you join me in some snowman fun:

Beijinhos!
