Snowman in the snow

Only good thing about Mondays is a new challenge at Paper Makeup Stamps Digi Makeover Challange :o) This week theme is:

So dig out your digi image and play with us :o) You can win three PMS images of your choice (five if your winning project has a PMS digi on it).
This week we have a guest designer: Sarah from Take a look and leave some love to her :o)

This week theme was a true challenge. I'm not good at monochrome theme at all. But I still managed to create something (with a little bit of silver... sorry). It's not big surprise that my card turned out blue. I just love blue color :)  
The background is made with resist technique. I stamped some snowflakes (We R Memory Keepers - Flurry) with Nellie Snellen's embossing ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. After that I inked the paper with Ranger Distress Ink - Broken China. It is matted on to white paper which is colored with ProMarker (China Blue).

Snowman is from PMS - Snow Happy digi set. He is colored with ProMarkers and popped up with foam tape. I added some Glossy Accents to his hat, scarf, eyes, nose, buttons and heart. Right snowman hand is drawn over the swirl. Swirls are die-cuts made with Crealies CL CS 02 die. They are also covered with Glossy Accents. Snowflakes are punched with Heyda snowflake punches. Larger is colored with same marker as matting layer, smaller snowflake is colored with silver MetallicMarker. I added some more 'snow' with Stanger Pearl paste. Blue ribbon with silver pattern is from my stash.

Inside is similar as front of the card except flurries are stamped with Broken China Distress Ink instead of heat embossing. Sentiments in front and inside are computer generated. And this little snowman hands are hand drawn.  It was too hard to cut them out :o)

Please excuse my awkward translation. The poem sounds much better in Estonian and it goes perfectly with this cute snowman image :o)
Small Jack waits for Christmas
in his head is verse and a hat.
Verse wants to go away,
hardly it fit in there.
Because of that he wears the hat,
Small Jack waits for Christmas

As you can see I'm not very active with card making right now. I've been very busy to making some cards ahead because I'm going to a trip next week for ten days. In next two Mondays I'll schedule my posts. Hopefully they go up. I'm not able to check it before July 26th.
Thank you for looking and have a fab summer!
