Snowy Day


Hi everyone.  Today's card is a cute digi that I got free from a blog that my friend Debbie told me about.  Check out the cute images illustrated by Torico of "Birdie Brown".

When I work with digi stamps I used my Publisher software.  This allows me to play around with the sizing of the image and also I can cover up parts of the image that I don't want.  In this case, I decided I wanted to use the snowman to make a stamp, so I covered up the outline box that comes with the original drawing.  I then used copics to color in the little bits on the image, adding Crystal Effects to give shine and dimension to the snowman's nose, buttons ... and the falling snow.  A little twine bow in the corner and it was done.  Fast, easy and fun to make ... this card makes me smile. :)

Paper:  White (C.C. Designs); blue DP (unknown)
