Hi! It's time for another Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
This one focuses on glitter (!) and an oh-so-appropriate frozen mood board:
I have to admit, I always find it funny to stamp snowmen after christmas (hee). I'm ready to move on to valentine's day and warmer-weathered themes, even though we're all icy and counting snowflakes for another few months in Montreal. It's brutal.
What do you think? Recognize him?
Here's what I did to stretch my stamps:
The snowman stamp (on the left) has a face. I inked it up, but used a baby wipe to carefully rid him of his features.
Then, using a pencil, I sketched a new face, longer twiggy arms, and a top hat that works with his up-turned gaze. Once I was satisfied with the sketch, I used a copic multiliner pen
to trace my work and I erased the pencil lines.
Stamp a few birds and a scarf and he's ready to come to life with some simple coloring. (Don't worry about the scarf - some careful paper-piecing will hide those intersecting lines.)
When all was colored and done, I masked all of the elements to be able to sponge some light grey ink all around. I then stamped some snow in an aqua ink, and accented a few flakes using a two-way glue pen
and some distress glitter
. A strip of glitter tape
at the bottom was to make sure I was challenge-worthy, ha ha.
So, stay cool! and don't be afraid to try new things and experiment with your stamped images.
