K n' K Designs is sponsoring a fund raiser to help pay for postage for Operation Write Home's busy holiday season. This Darling Patriotic Snowman digital stamp set I used on my card today was created by DeeDee Anderson is one of the fabulous sets being offered for sale & all the proceeds will go to OWH.
I printed out my sweet little Patriotic Snowman onto Flourishes Classic White and colored him up with my trusty Copics of course, and the help of a white gel pen to emphasize the stars. My BG was made using a new technique, to me anyway, that I have been wanting to try for a while now, emboss resist... I embossed my Flourishes snowflakes with Snow Cap EP and then sponged on a bit of Tumbled Glass, and Stormy Skies Distress inks over top... Not too shabby for my first attempt, lol but next time I will add more snowflakes.. lol. It seemed a little spars to me so I added a few punched snowflakes popped up with some tiny pieces of foam tape. The rest is pretty simple.. I partially cut out my Sweet Snowman, tore the edges of the CS and added an additional torn scrap of CS, in front, colored up the torn edge with the help of my BG0000 Copic marker and did a bit more popping up of layers with more foam tape.. I printed out my sentiment from the same digi set, matted everything up with some Deep Red CS from my stash and lastly added a few adhesive peals to finish it all up.
We will be having a blog hop this Saturday showcasing all the K 'n K Designs & Dee Dee Anderson's digital stamp sets for the Operation Write Home Fund Raiser. Sure hope you can join the fun! 8-)
