Holiday Greetings…In Yo Face!

Stampendous has gotten together with Clearsnap this week for some fun.  This was a little outside my comfort zone (yes, i actually have one).  I decided to play with the Colorbox Paintbox pigment and a water brush to create this snowy fun image by Stampendous.  I finally got into the groove and had a hard time stopping.

 I first stamped with Colorbox Archival “Seattle Sky” gray dye ink pad.  Then I took my water brush and robbed it on the Paintbox ink pad and “watercolored in the image.  As you know if you are used to coloring with copics it isn’t going to be as vivid, but I like the soft look.  After I finished coloring it in I got ready to get messy.

I sprinkled Stampendous Chunky white embossing enamel on the image and heated from underneath.  After some card sewing I placed the image on the card and started to decorate with hand dyed cheese cloth, buttons and pearls.  Next I took some adhesive and added Purple Color Fragments, Fuchsia glass glitter and Halo glitter.  Did I mention I didn’t want to stop?

This is about the only snow we see in Phoenix Arizona…LOL.  Not too pleased.  Good thing it didn’t happen in my lap and I was able to put it back in my jar.  I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have my Chunky White!  Stampendous Image “cling Snowball Fight” can be found HERE

  1. Beautiful card, love all the amazing embellishments. I still water colour form time to time but I got a large set of Prisma's last Christmas and have been using them all year.


  2. I just love the stitched background papers and the fibers and buttons used on your card. The colors on the snowmen are so soft looking. Great card.

  3. Love this card. I don't mean to be dense, but HOW did you get the chunky white embossing powder to stay in little white balls? And what kind of adhesive did you use before heating from below? Thanks so much…just darling!

  4. WOW! Look at all that ooh-la-la on that card! What a super cute and fun winter greeting. Just love it! Thanks so much for sharing with us this week!

  6. If you want to see snow you can come to my house – or I can send you some. 🙂
    Your snowpeople are so cute. I love all of the textures and layers. Great job.
