Snowy Mike

Hello! I have a scrapbook page to share with you today. I made this as my sample for the Scrapbook Challenge I am hosting at StampTV this week. I would love to have you play along! And there is a chance to win free stamps from Gina K. :)

The photos are from a ski trip about 10 years ago. We were doing a bit of sledding and I just had to snap these photos of my husband right after he ran headlong into a snow bank.

I started by stamping some snowflakes from Holiday Cheer, using Versa Mark ink, then heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.

I sponged around the snowflakes and along the edges of the paper with Certainly Celery ink (SU).

Stamped the poinsettia from A Year of Flowers and colored with Copics, starting with YG95.

Added YG93.

Used my blender pen to smooth out the color.

I cut out the poinsettia and added some self adhesive pearls to the center.

I stamped a branch from Winter Foliage with Old Olive ink (SU) around the edges. I mounted my photos with Pure Luxury Smoky Slate and layered the page with Smoky Slate and Fresh Asparagus. I also used my EK Success Curved Corner punch for the corner details.

Here is the sketch for the challenge. If you are not a scrapbooker, you can still play along by using the sketch to make a card.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
