A Frosty Snow Man

 I am up on the Shimmerz Blog today with this blustery card.

Isn't he the cutest?  This was my very first Sweet n Sassy Stamps stamp purchase.  This particular set has been retired, but Mr.  Snowman has been resurrected in the Crazy About Snowmen Stamp Set as well as being available as a digi image.
But first things first.  I started with the background- some mixed media paper, a Tim Holtz stencil and some Shimmerz Tidy Widy Texturez paste.  I love this paste as it maintains a shiny finish even after it has dried.  Once my paste was dry, I painted onto the unembossed areas with Iris My Case Shimmerz Paint.  I spritzed it with water to make it more runny.  Once I had the coverage I wanted, I let the paint dry.  I was left with some amazing sparkle!

My snowman was colored with Copics and fussy cut out.  I embossed the sentiment onto vellum.
The card was assembled and finished off with sequins and veneer snowflakes.

I am linking this card up to Mix It Up Challenge blog for their Anything Goes plus -technique- which for me is stenciling with embossing paste.

If you would like to shop at Shimmerz Paints, add my name, Lee Ann, to the comments section of your order and they will send you a free small paint! 

That's it for me!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
