LOTV Sneaky Peek!

Challenges

Sketch & Stash (69) - Sketch (New Stamp/Paper)
Passion For Promarkers (115) - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations (134) - Dies/Punches
Fab 'N' Funky (88) - Embossing (Trees)

Today I have used another of the stamps from the LOTV 2nd Christmas release out on 6th September. This little cutie is called 'Little Bears - Snowman' and I have coloured it with promarkers, glitter and flock. Although I have followed the great sketch I have done something a little different this time with it. First I turned it, then I have used a die-cut fence, distressed and glittered, instead of the panel at the bottom of the sketch and stamped/embossed/glittered trees and snowflake instead of the panel/bow on the left of the sketch. I hope this is acceptable for the challenge as I was trying to create a bit of a scene. Anyway I'm calling it artistic licence and interpretation. The snowflakes have been punched from three different punches using white pearl vellum and I have added aqua shimmer dots to the centres to match the gorgeous paper. The sentiments have been stamped and glittered and cut with nesties as has the main image. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
