This first card is for the Embellish Magazine color challenge and the Sweet & Sassy Stamps sketch challenge.
One of the requirements of the sketch challenge was to use something recycled. I used a 2 liter soda bottle to cut out the snowflakes with a Cuttlebug die. I was surprised because the piece of the bottle was really curling and driving me crazy until I ran it through the machine. Something about the cutting process made the snowflakes lie flat! I love my clear snowflakes, and I think I'm going to try even more shapes cut from soda bottles. I think green bottles would also be a fabulous choice!
The colors were to be PTI's Raspberry Fizz, light pink, and a dark grey, plus you had to use bling! I added rhinestones to the snow lady's buttons and hat, plus the centers of the snowflakes.
I cut out a mask of the snowman and sponged in the sky using Bashful Blue ink. Afterwards, I added Fun Flock to the ground using a Quickie Glue Pen. I stamped snowflakes on the Basic Gray layer with Whisper White craft ink and then sponged the edges to soften it.
