I know it is simple but I really wanted to play with sewing a bit and with all the snow we have been having lately I though the Snowman was fitting. I stamped the image on white card then sewed a sheer blue over top using black thread. Before finishing the stitching I added some medium silver glitter from Pink Paisley under the fabric then finished the stitch creating a fabric type shaker box. Once stitched I frayed the fabric edges for a bit of a distressed look and inked the card edges with Black Soot Distress ink. I then painted a chibboard snowflake from Chip off the olds Block blue and added Basic Grey gems and Stickles glitter glue. Finally I added some black soot Distress stickles on top of the fabic as the snowman eyes and buttons. I thought about adding some color to the image but chose not to so as to keep the chilly snowy feeling throughout just like the weather.
Here shown above is a close up of the chipboard snowflake and below is a closeup of the snowman. I like the way the Distress Stickles give depth to the eyes.
I will set off with this image of my view this morning from my craft room of the snow. We have been getting a bit more every evening then it begins to melt during the day only to freeze again at night. It is a pretty site though. So calming and peaceful. Hope everyone is staying warm. Have a wonderful day. Angela
