Chill Snow-Dude

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends.  I hope you’ve been able to celebrate with loved ones, and gratitude is dwelling in your heart this week.  

We’ve got some awesome news today from Power Poppy!  This new digital stamp set from Marcy is available for just $1 until Monday!  Plus there’s a huge sale going on as well.  

I think I spoke too soon the other day when I said we only had a dusting of snow, now we have about 20 + cm or about 8 inches!  So, this little snow dude is right at home :)  He is one of my all-time favourite snowmen.  He has the perfect blend of chubbyness, whimsical expression and fashionable snow-wear, plus you throw on some berry-fied arms, a sweet bird, and he’s just irresistible!  Marcy also included a snowflake background in the set that’s super sweet too.   The set is called Let’s Chill.  

I paired him with this Echo Park - The Story of Christmas paper that has a great combination of swirly designs, woodgrain and rich green.  

In this shot you can see that I sparklified all the puddles of extra snow with a Wink of Stella pen, and I also coloured in the wood button in the same Copic colours as his buttons in the illustration.  The swirly border is from TCP.  

Here are the Copics I used to give him life.  And here’s the fun news for you....the big, fantastic, awesome SALE on all things Power Poppy and Let’s Chill on sale!  

We have a lovely assortment of the Instant Gardener Team and the Bloom Brigade showing off Mr. Let’s Chill and you won’t want to miss it!  Pop on by the Power Poppy Blog to find out who’s playing along!

Oh, Christine, you are a master at coloring, and I just love your snowdude in every way! I love the great DP you've used (I need to find more like you do), and what amazing and beautiful coloring! Love his hat and scarf, and that sweet little bird is adorable! Beautiful with the layout, and I really love the "snow" around him! Sweetness! Glad you didn't get too much snow! Hugs!
