Fussy & Fancy challenge #2 - WINTER

Fussy & Fancy
Challenge
#2
"WINTER"


"StampInsanity" is all about edgy, unique and sassy stamps." The owner, Beth Schultz, was very sweet to give the Design Team a fun winter themed image to use for our creations. I personally think that this edgy guy could easily be turned into a funky female based on how you color the image. Cannot wait to go try out my fun idea!

About my card: This was my very first attempt at creating an "Easel Card"....... I think I have found my newest addiction!! Fun, Fun, Fun I also remembered that I had a very cool Basic Grey "Peace Symbol".. I stamped that image in grey, then used a glue pen and traced the image (sheeeesh my Martha Stewart glue pad would have been so much quicker but didn't remember that until NOW), I then sprinkled on a very fine white glitter. I used black Swarovski Crystals for my snowman's buttons.

Other CHALLENGES:
Creative Belli Challenges: Glitter or rhinestones (I used both)
Three Clovers Designs: Baby It's Cold Outside

Visit our Challenge Blog see what the rest of the Design Team came up with along with complete Challenge Details
