Just Inspirational DT, Challenge #13

Our challenge this week at Just Inspirational Challenges is a sketch challenge. The DT was also supplied with this fun little snowman image from Crafty Sentiments Designs, our sponsor for this weeks challenge.

I've colored him with my watercolour pencils and added a little sparkle here and there with some Stickles, Glossy Accents, and Diamond Dust covered Martha Stewart snowflakes. I added a few extra layers of paper to the sketch and did a LOT of distressing.
Normally I am a traditional green and red Christmas person, but I saw these papers at Hobby Lobby and knew my little guy was going to have a blue Christmas. (I know, bad joke). :)


Paper: Great White cardstock, The Paper Studio
Stamp: Crafty Sentiments Designs Snowman and Broom
Inks+: Derwent Watercolour pencils, Inkadinkado Blending Chalks
Tools: Martha Stewart snowflake punch
Miscellaneous: Twinklets Diamond Dust, Crystal and Waterfall Stickles, Glossy Accents

Happy Thursday!
