Snowy Happy Christmas

I've finally inked up my new stamps by Birdie Brown for MFT called Ready Set Snow to use for todays card...

First image inked is the super cool polar bear coloured with Prisma pencils and fussy cut out.  I die cut the happy three times and used tumbled glass Distress Oxide on one layer.

Then using texture paste I smeared it all over the top half, added a bit of sparkle to make it look like the bear is grinding the snowy happy.  Texture paste is perfect for snow and I like it more uneven rather than perfect through a stencil :)

The Christmas is from a set by Clearly Besotted and the snowflakes are from a set by Uniko stamped with the same ink as the happy.

For a finishing touch I added Wink of Stella to the snowboard and some glossy accents on his goggles.

  2. Have to agree about the chunky has a more real feel to it. And your 'happy' with its snowbank topping looks great! He's a mighty cute snowboarder, too. What a fun Christmas card! Love those blues as well. xo Bev
