Snowmen Selfie

Snowmen Selfie

Snowmen SelfieGood morning!! I posted a sneaky peak of the image I used on this card a couple days ago, on Facebook.  Today is the day that you can pick up this adorable image as a FREEBIE, at Sheepski Designs Challenge Blog!!  Andrea is offering this as a freebie, to celebrate the 100th image that she’s created!! While you’re at the blog, check out the current challenge, Girlz Rule.  We all like sneaking a girl into our cards, every now and then ;)  If you use a Sheepski Designs image, and are the winner, or Top 3, your prize is bumped up by an extra image!  To help out with your shopping, here is a special discount code to use:

I colored this image up with my Prismacolors, on gray Kraft paper (didn’t know there was such a thing, but there it was, at Michael’s!)  I framed it to look like a polaroid, and heat embossed a sentiment.  I tucked a few die cut snowflakes behind the picture, and used my white gel pen to make a scribbley edge, before mounting the whole thing on a blue card blank :)

I’d like to enter this into the following challenges:

Winter Wonderland – Add Snowflakes

Brown Sugar Challenge – #255 ATG

Smile!Hello!! I won this image on last month’s Club KennyK Facebook challenge, and just loooove it!! Retro Selfie is so sassy, but I just had to give her a vintage look when I chose my color palette.  I colored the image with my Prismacolors, then went to work assembling the card. The background paper is from a stack that was a magazine freebie a few years ago. I immediately thought of the film strip tape from Tim Holtz when I saw this image, as well as the die cut film strip that I had for ages. I didn’t have any pink roses in the shade I wanted, so I made these using a punch and paired them up with an off white rose from my stash and some gold fern leaves that I die cut with a Frantic Stamper die. It needed something more, so I coated some wire with Flower Soft, twisted it up, and added a few sprigs here and there. I stamped and embossed a gold “smile” sentiment, then stamped over it with black for a shadow effect.
