Digital Tuesday Creation ...

I'm still trying to get my mojo jump started so I'm trying a new challenge today. Today my creation is for the Digital Tuesday Challenge and we were asked to do Winter Scene Images using lots of Dazzling Diamonds (Diamond Dust) for Snow. You are to use a digi image also. That is the part I nearly forgot!!!!!

I first made this card using a Sugar Nellie image (see insert) then when I was finished, I realized I was to use a digi image so gently took the Whiff of Joy off and added this fun loving snowman by a NEW digi image designer ... Tanya (Stawnies - Stamps by Tanya). Tanya has a couple other blogs you might be interested in ... links are on the sidebar of her stores blog.

I created the background by using a large sponge pod and various blue SU inks and smeared them back & forth half way down the piece of paper. Then I stamped the moon using another large sponge pod & white craft ink & embossed with silver pearls embossing powder. The pine trees is a stamp by Stampscapes (150E-pine row). Next I tore strips of white card stock, stacked them ... then used Martha Stewart craft glue and Twinklets Diamond Dust to create my snow. For my snowman, I colored him using Prismacolor Markers, cut him out with a Fiskars swivel craft knife then added the glue/diamond dust.

So what do you think??? I think he's pretty cute and makes me want to go outside an build my own snowman!! Yes, we have enough snow to be able to do this and they are calling for more this coming weekend ... joy, joy!!
