Snowman Hugs

Good evening- I've had  some time to play this weekend- finished some projects that have been lying around for a while and then decided to make a Christmas card using one of the digis I was lucky enough to win recently. This little cutie is Blizzy Snowman from Digi Doodle Studios.
I used my copics to colour the image, inked the background and gave him Snowtex snow to sit in (Snowmen don't mind getting cold damp fact they quite like it!) then sprinkled chunky white embossing powder and heated. 

I made a circle side step base, covered it with throbi DP  and added the image and die cut trees and a little Snowtex along the 'step'. The sentiment is from a PB stamp set. I'm pleased with this as not only does it stand up nice and straight (never a given when I create my own card bases) it also rocks gently side to side when pushed. 

Thanks for visiting,
have a lovely evening

Gorgeous image and colouring Chris and love the snow splatters and the fabulous chunky snow for the snowman and his little friend to sit in and I love the shape with the rocking motion, mine usually just roll off the table, but working on it..
