Blowing Kisses

Here’s this week’s sketch for the i {heart} card sketches challenge by From the Heart Stamps:


As it gets closer to the holidays, it becomes more difficult to keep up with challenges; but I don’t like missing the challenges by From the Heart Stamps.  So here’s my card, featuring Blowing Kisses Snowman.  I never tire of snowmen…I sure hope you don’t!

Blowing Kisses 2

I took a few liberties with this sketch by interpreting the snowman’s head as the circle and his body as the rectangle.  I traced around him in my Silhouette and then traced individual pieces such as; head, hat, arms, mittens, foot, heart and nose and layered them for a 3D effect, which is the twist this week.  I used Liquid Applique on the pom-pom on his hat.  I used Wink of Stella on the snowman but you can’t see or appreciate it here.  I also used a gold leaf pen and dotted the mittens and hat…you can’t see that either.  I used Chill Out digital papers by Sweet Shoppe Designs and I used some near ancient mulberry paper.  You can click on the image for more pictures and additional info.

I’m also submitting this card to the following challenges:
