Frosty or Well Wrapped Up - Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 21st of October

This week at Winter Wonderland, we are hosted by Marie, who has decided on the themes:
Frosty - which means cold colours such as blue, silver and white, or an alternative is snowmen
Well Wrapped Up

We have two sponsors this week:
Marianne design, who are offering a special prize to the winner

and we are also sponsored by
Bugaboo Stamps, who have a prize of 7 images for the winner.

Please remember that to be in with a chance of winning a prize that it is Christmas projects only.

So on to my card!

I have dabbed Summer Sky Memento ink through my "Winter Snowflake Lace" designer stencil from Memory Box on to my white card from Envelope Solutions.
I have then digitally printed the snowman and sentiment from Let's Chill by Marcella at Power Poppy Stamps on to X-Press It card. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut them out (I do not like fussy cutting!)
I have coloured the snowman with the following Copics markers:
  • scarf and hat: BG13, BG10, BG000, BG0000
  • buttons: BG13, BG000
  • carrot nose: YR07, YR04
  • arms: E37, E35,  R35
  • bird: R35, R32
  • snowman: C1, C0, RV00 (cheeks)
  • snow: C1, C0, BV0000
  • background: BV0000, BV000
  • eyes and mouth: black Wink of Stella
I have coloured the sentiment with BG10 and outlined in BG13.
I have added a bit of sparkle to the snowman and snow using my Wink of Stella brush pen.
Here is a close up of the snowman:
