Purple Onion Designs | Christmas Snowman

Hello there, I am delighted to be joining Purple Onion Designs for their new Pine Cone Trail release. The wonderful new collection is in the shops now and let me tell you, it is so cute! Today I am using the new Bianca & Neve stamp.

For my card today, I started off by creating the background. I took a panel of watercolour paper and blended on Distress Inks in Blueprint Sketch and Seedless Preserves (at the top) to create a sky for my snowman to be in. I then spritzed the piece with water before splattering on some Picket Fence Distress Paint. The piece was then set aside to dry.
I took the Purple Onion Designs Bianca & Neve (Snowman with Winter Bird) stamp and stamped it on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then coloured it using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area) before fussy cutting out with scissors. I took the Purple Onion Designs Merry Christmas stamp and stamped it on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied White Embossing Powder and heat set. This was then cut in to a strip.
Once the background was dry, I adhered it flat to an A2 white card base and then added a strip of MFT Black & White Stripes Paper, as well as a strip of black cardstock to the left of the panel so that my snowman and bird could sit on top. The image was added on with foam tape. I then added the sentiment with more foam tape into the top right hand corner. To finish off, I added Tonic White Blizzard Nuvo Drops to the snowman's hat and Nuvo Crystal Glaze to his buttons.

I went a bit heavy handed with the paint so my snowman and bird look like they are in a blizzard, poor things, but they are still smiling, so that's ok! :) For more inspiration using the new release, please head over to the Purple Onion Designs Blog.
