Sparkly Snowmen

We had our first snow of the winter this morning.....okay, it was only enough to dust the roof of the car and was gone within about 30 minutes, but it WAS snow! LOL!

There are a few 'Snowman' challenges around, so out came my favourite snowman rubber stamp.  The Country View Crafts Challenge this month is 'Christmas with the option of Reds, Greens & Rust', so my first card incorporates these colours. I'm not sure why the red looks a bit orangey, but in IRL it is bright red.
The stamp is an old wood mounted stamp by Anita's.  I coloured the image with Promarkers, then went over the falling snow, the snow on the ground and the snowman's body with a clear Spectrum Noir glitter brush pen to add some sparkle.  After matting and layering the image and raising the sentiment up on foam pads, I finished off my card with five Card Candi.

I am joining in the following challenges with this card:


My second card, like one of yesterday's cards, is using blue and white, the colours of our local football team.  Mr Snowman is dressed ready to go to the match tomorrow.  This card will be for another friend who regularly watches the team play.

I am joining in the following challenges with this card:
