Sassy Challenge #20

July13 blkA cool challenge from Sassy Heather,
Christmas in July!
Why don't you play along too!
Just be sure to use a
Sassy Cheryl's image.

Don't forget the Winter/Christmas images at  Sassy Cheryl's are 10% off through the end of July!

July13 Snowy Night sideI used Four Squared Snowmen today for my card. I masked each snowman, stars and mittens then airbrushed the background.

July13 Snowy Night Snowmen I masked off the edges and used a Copic marker to match and faux layered, then I cut it out. Don't worry, the snowman in the upper left corner didn't feel a thing when his arms were cut off...
Using a fine tip artist pen, I drew his arms and re-attached his mittens. Operation a success!

The stars are colored with a Sakura metallic silver gel pen, the snowmen's bodies are with a white Elmer's Painty pen. Then I took stickles and made a snowfall. The punched border is EK's Flower & Flourish. I couldn't stand to waste the flourishes as they fit with a "blustery, wintry" night, so stuck them on top of the embossed snowflakes and added stickles to them too!
