Just Inspirational Challenge #16

Our challenge this week at Just Inspirational Challenges is to make a stamped project--ink or digi.  It doesn't have to be a Christmas image.  Our sponsor is Crafty Sentiments Designs and Suzette gave the DT this cute little snowman to work with.  This turned into a VERY monochromatic card but I'm happy with it.  The image is watercolored and there's lots of layers.  For the flower I made the bottom petals with some of the paper I used in the layering and a flower punch and then I stuck a mulberry paper rose in the center that I inked with a little Distress ink.


Papers:  Georgia Pacific white cardstock, Coordinations, Recollections, Paper Pizazz, Strathmore Watercolor paper
Stamp:  Crafty Sentiments
Inks+:  Derwent Watercolour pencils, Diamond Stickles, Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, pearl Perfect Pearls, Tulip white Puff Paint
Tools:  Nestabilities Classic Squares Large (S4-126) and Standard Circles Large (S4-114), Martha Stewart Layered Arches border punch
Miscellaneous:  Offray and American Crafts ribbon, Recollections mini rose
