Groovy Snowgirl

Hello Everyone!!  Well I don't know about you, but where I live at the moment it's freezing cold and the wind is HOWLING!  UGH!!!  Typical August weather......which means it's perfect for staying in and creating cards!!!  :)  Since I feel cold, I was in the mood to make something resembling cold weather and reached for my Groovy Snowman set and decided to use this super cute snowgirl!!!  I've also loosely based it on this week's 2 Sketches 4 You challenge and used a circle instead of a rectangle.

I started with a base of white and layered with pink bazzill and topped with another piece of white that has been embossed with a snowflake EF and then sponged with Pretty in Pink ink.  The next panel is more sponged white that has been punched with the MS Loop punch and topped with Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly DSP.  Across this I've added some pink satin ribbon.  I stamped my Groovy Snowman (Snowgirl) in Memento Tuxedo Black on X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (R81, R83, R85, R89, G40, G82, BG0000, C1, Y21, Y35, Y38).  I cut it out with large circle nestabilities and matted with some hazel bazzill cut with big scallop circle nestabilities and popped it all up on foam tape.  To finish I added a big pink bow and topped it with a snowflake (MS punch) and clear rhinestone and added more clear rhinestones to the corners.

JustRite Stampers are now stocking ALL 24 colours of Memento Ink and they are perfect for stamping your images - especially if you want to use Copics to colour them!!!  Personally I love Memento Ink and already have a few colours, but I certainly have a wish list for more!!!  ;-)

It's been in the 90's here (over 35 celsius) for 40 days!!! I think I'd take the howling cold wind right about now....maybe.

Oh yes I love this card. I just want to know how you do it Kathy, all those fiddley bits to colour with the copics. I wish I had your control over where the jolly colour goes. lol
