Lately I have been doing a lot of experimenting and pushing myself out of my normal, predictable way of making cards. Some results have been good, some have needed some tweaking, and some went right into the trash can. Earlier in the year I bought some new embossing folders. So cute. But now they are a challenge for me because I am having a hard time knowing how to use them except for white on white CAS. So here is one of my experiments. (You can comment and tell me if it a keeper, needs tweaking, or should be filed in the circular file.)
I love Kraft and Blue together so I started with a Light Kraft Cardstock base then added a pale blue layer (SU's Bashful Blue). With a Copic B0000, I added a bit of color to the face, scarf, and buttons. The snowflakes are cut out with a Cuttlebug die with an added bit of Stickles for sparkle.
You probably get tired of my mentioning my love of twine but I really do love the Hemp Cord at the Kraft Journal.
So there it is. What do you think? And if you are up to making a project with a snowman as your theme, we would love to see it for the Kraft Journal challenge this week.
