Making a song and dance

As I had this dancing snowman out on my desk it seemed only right that I should join in with the current Lost Coast/Carmen’s Veranda challenge where the theme is “song and dance” and add another Christmas card to my stash.

I thought the Bubble Border would make a fun hillside for him! I heat embossed with white powder and blended a couple of Oxides inks over it then added a wee bit of shading with a couple of Copics and gave a few circles the Wink of Stella treatment for just a touch of festive glitz.

The snowman is stamped on the card base so his little arm waggle lines and scarf fringe are there. I coloured and fussy cut another one and stuck him on with some gel glue so he has a bit of dimension.

Wow, I love the bubble border hillside. What a cool idea. And green snow is very in right now. The little snowman is so cute and obviously a great little dancer. Fab card. Thanks for joining the fun at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity Challenge. Hugz

That guy reminds me of the cartoon Frosty the Snowman who was also a happy fellow with a black hat and good on his feet. :)

That is a cool idea for the bubbles to be snow. I love how you envision things.
