Snow Amazing

Wednesday, November 7, 2018
Hi friends, I'm up on the Shimmerz Paints Blog today with my take on this month's color challenge. This month we eached picked a color from the product line to feature in a winter themed project. My chosen color was the beautiful Sugar Plum Shimmerz. I'm sharing another card as well as this one over on their blog, so hop on over when you're through with this post!

My card for today features the adorable new Snow Amazing stamp set. I first stamped the snowman image on watercolor paper and got to work painting him with sugar plum and royal purple shimmerz. I mixed a bit of the sugar plum to cold as ice shimmerz and then watered it down to do the shading on the snowman. I've never done purple shading on a snowman before, but it works! 😃 Next I fussy cut around him, leaving off the more difficult to cut branches and birdies to stamp on a different layer.

I then inked up the image just from the ornaments upward and stamped onto a piece of watercolor paper. I colored them with Shimmerz, then made a quick mask and taped off a section for a starry background. I then did a wash with Colder than Ice and when it had dried, I used a falling stars layering stencil to add winter's mist stars to the background. I then peeled up the tape and  added my fussy cut snowman over the top with collage medium. The branches are done in so sappy shimmerz and the carrot nose in pumpkin shimmerz.

The sentiment is stamped onto a vellum circle and I accented with a couple of chipboard snowflakes from the Scrapaholics Let it Snow set. I painted them with a coat of colder than ice and then accented each with a rhinestone. A seam binding bow across the bottom finishes things off.
