Snowman Parts!

Hello Blogging Friends,

For some reason, I have been wanting to work on Christmas Cards for the last few weeks.  Last year I can say, I was not really in the holiday spirit, but I think this year will be totally different.  I am just about ready to turn on the Christmas songs and sing along.

I could not find the right background paper to go along with this Sassy Cheryl's Snowman Parts image, so I made my own using the emboss resist technique and some tim holtz blue distress inks and Stampers Anonymous snowflakes .  I first embossed the snowflakes on white card stock.  Then I used three different colors of ink over the entire sheet of card stock to add color.  The embossed images resist the ink and come out very bright white.  I then cut the colored image out with my spellbinders die and added some ribbon and a snowflake charm.

The image was colored on cryogen paper using copics:
Basket:  E31, E33, E35, E37, W1, W3, W5, E19
Scarf:  E99, YR24, YR27, G14, G07, G17, B91, B93, B95, R24, R27, R89
Hat:  0, W3, W5, W7, W10
Twigs:  E43, E47, E49
Carrot:  YR15, YR18, YR68
Snowman:  0, W1, W2, W3

The inside is done using tim holtz distress inks and white embossing powder for the emboss resist technique.  The sentiment is by Printworks Collection

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
