rustic snowman

Hi!
I drew this scene years ago........and pulled it out to create a digi image of it (now that I'm illustrating for Squigglefly).........but a much simpler version of it (without the wooden bird houses and all the details), so if you like this image it'll be available at Squigglefly on Dec. 5th!
I used some of those candy canes on this card....my daughter saw them on the kitchen counter (that's where I work with fimo...near the stove) and she popped one in her mouth...didn't take long to figure out it wasn't REAL candy!LOL



          


I coloured this with my Derwent pencils that I LOVE! And since the challenge at Caardvarks is all about COLOUR...
I also used some glossy accents and my GellyRoll glitter pen to add some interest.




                 

I'm going to try and finish my card for Lucy's challenge...........
Have a great day and thanks for popping by!

materials - cardstock, pp (making memories), stamps (sentiment PTI)...digi image (my own), button and candy cane (handmade by me), string, Derwent pencils, glossy accents, gellyroll glitter pen.
