Valerie with Snowman


Rudolph day has come round again. I didn't manage to play last month so was determined to make sure I entered a card for september. I had such fun colouring up 'Valerie with Snowball' in blue a few days ago that I decided to use another digi of her by Mo's Digital Pencil. This one is called 'Valerie with Snowman' and I have coloured in red. I used acetate again for the card front but made it as a panel encased either side by the red card stock. I have paper pieced the snowman's hat and scarf and also her coat and layered up using 3d pads. Red twine, stickers and silver sentiment from my stash. Winter Wonderland generated in word and cut using an SU labels punch.


 Coloured using just 2 red promarkers for the clothes. Below showing the acetate frontage.

Hi Mrs A
This is fantastic. Brilliant use of acetate as it makes everything look more dimensional.
