Snowman and a tipsy penguin

Say Hello to my new favourite snowman!   I'd been watching out for something to use for my unmounted stamps on my stamping platform, so when I spied this one at Purple Onion Designs I couldn't resist adding the Jolly Snowman to my basket too!

Coloured with polychromos - clear gloss/glitter added to his nose and I also went over his scarf/pocket with my clear glitter pen so it's all nice and sparkly.  White enamel dots for falling snow.

  • The cover of the book at the Library Challenge inspired my blue background and outstretched arms image
  • ABC Christmas - S is for Sparkle
  • Your Next Stamp Fun Friday - just for fun
  • As You Like It - Santa or no Santa - I don't have very many Santas in my stash, and I definitely have waaaay more snowmen.  

This one uses the little penguin and drink/flower from an older MFT set along with their Cheers die.  Coloured with a mixture of watercolour pencils and polychromos.  I added some sparkle to the drinks, clear gems and some white enamel dots.

These are two very cute cards! I love the snowman going 'yay' - just like the woman on the book cover! Thanks for joining The Library.

They're both fun cards, but that snowman just makes me smile. He is just so gleeful over the falling snow. Of course, if he had to shovel it (like we do) he wouldn't be quite so happy. he he
