Winter Fun

I decided since it is still in the 90's here in Arizona, I would color a nice winter scence to cool things down :)  CJ of Cowgirls Stampen Ranch had the perfect image for my project. "Frosty" can be purchased here along with a wide variety of other stamps. Currently at Cowgirls Sunday Stampen Challenge the challenge is girly girl. Starting Sunday, the 17th, the challenge will be sponsored by Michelle Perkett and it will be a sketch challenge and make your own background papers. There are always lots of prizes available for both the winner and Top 3, so mark your calendars and come on over and join one or both of our challenges!

For "Frosty" I colored him with Copics and then added lots of stickles to make the snow shimmer like diamonds. I embossed the white sparkly paper with my Cuttlebug Divine Swirls folder.
