Countdown to Christmas #5

For Countdown to Christmas #5, it was time to revisit the fabulous Snowman Season Stamp Set and Snowman Builder Punch. I’m so pleased they came across to this year’s Annual Catalogue.

You all know how much I love a monochrome project. Well, this begins life as one, then more colour is added for each of the snowmen.

My main colours are Seaside Spray and of course Whisper White.

Using a Sponge Dauber and then stamping with the snowflake stamps, the background comes together.

I like the way it’s not too precise, and gives a touch of colour.

Next, two of the snowmen, along with the sentiment are stamped and punched out using a Circle Punch.

The main snowman is stamped and punched out, plus another circles for it to sit on.

All of the snowmen are then coloured with Wink of Stella to add some shimmer.

They are also coloured with Watercolor Pencils, all with Pumpkin Pie carrot noses.

A Basic Black Hat and two Soft Suede arms are also punched and attached to the back of the snowman using Dimensionals.

Finally, the main snowman is stuck onto the project.

This is a fun project, great for old and young alike.

Don’t forget to pop back for Countdown to Christmas #6.
