Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers

It's Wednesday again and I was SO glad I had the time and opportunity to participate in this challenge. The sketch was challenging as usual but I met that challenge!!

This little snowman is by Hampton Arts. It's another Hampton Snowman. He just looks like a Hampton to me!

I followed the sketch and I measured the pieces and kept mine that size as best as I could. I did turn my card sideways. The snowman looked too funny standing on end!!! LOL

The card base is black and then a layer of Ballet Blue on top of that. The Bashful blue piece was stamped with snowflakes from The Snowflake Spot set and embossed with white embossing powder.

Hampton himself was stamped on watercolor paper and black Staz-on. Again I used the Staz-on because I'm going to be using a blender pen. The glycerin in the blender pen is not friendly with regular ink. It makes it run and smear. I colored him in and layered him on top of a scrap piece of black card stock. The strip under him is of Ballet Blue and black. I got the snowflakes in the decorative button section at Michael's. I set them in place with Crystal Effects. Man is that stuff ever versatile!!! I actually used it to "glue" the bottoms of my soup cans. It worked SO well and I didn't have to worry about getting my fingers glued together like I did with the crazy glue. That's some scary stuff!!!

Anyway, this is Hampton and he can be seen in my gallery at Splitcoast too!

Thank you for stopping by!
