This is for today's FREE 4 ALL CHALLENGE # 27 - Snow "Man". Sorry Jeanne but I am no where near ready to start my Christmas cards so I tried to use my noggin' to think "outside of the box".
This image is from a digital set called "Cowboy Life" that will be released Sept 1st from TREEHOUSE STAMPS DIGITIAL LINE. I covered the bottom with my glue pen and topped it off with some white glitter fun flock. I used B32 copic randomly around my image to simulate that blueish sky in the winter time. My base is bashful blue where I used the Cuttlebug - The Negative Effect technique inking up the negative side of my Diamonds & dots folder with bashful blue then running my BB cs through the cuttlebug machine. I punched the white strip of cs with the sentiment on it using Martha Stewart's drippy goo border punch to simulate melting snow. I used my scissors around the 3 edges of my focal panel to distress them. My layout is from Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 295. Hope you like it.
