Snowman Reaching for the Stars Card

Hello everyone :-D  

I just finished this Snowman Reaching for the Stars Card

For my card layout I used a beautiful sketch092 with a twist from {heart} sketches by Imke Ludvig and rotated it a bit. Twist was to use textured paper. There was also an inspirational color board, but I didn´t use it. 

Card dimensions are 98 mm x 143 mm (3 7/8" x 5 5/8").

I used From the Heart Stamps 'Reach for the Stars Snowman' digital stamp set, which includes lovely image and three sentiments. I like this snowman a lot! :-D

Image is paper pieced and it has two layers. I printed one image on white paper, colored it, fussy cut it, colored edges and layered it over the other image printed on textured paper.

At the end I added  acrylic paste underneath snowman to create snow effect. After the paste was dry, I smeared pearl maker over it to create glossy accents.

List of supplies:
  • From the Heart Stamps 'Reach for the Stars Snowman' 
  • Florence cardstock paper, Canvas Texture (dark and light grey) 
  • white paper 160 grams 
  • colored pencils (light and dark grey)
