It's All About the Weather
Frances Byrne is the hostess for the month of February at CCEE Stampers and she let the team know Feb. 5th was Weatherperson's Day so she is giving the challenge this week to create a card that features some sort of weather. It can be sun, clouds, snow, rain, etc. You would know I would choose snow so I'll have an excuse to do another snowman. :-)
My scene is from a stamp I won from High Hopes called Winter Wonderland. I left off some lines that were on it for snow as it was a black line indicating a mound of snow. But, I wanted to sponge mine. I cut a template from cardstock and used Tim Holtz Distress Ink/Stormy Sky to create my snow. The sky was sponged with the same color.
The snowman is a Royal Langnickel/Let it Snow stamp. He didn't have a body below the scarf so I used an EK Success 3/4" punch to make one. I colored him, cut out and placed him in the scene.
The rest of the recipe is below. We hope you'll join us this week for our weather challenge.
