Christmas Caroling with Merry Monday


The fun loving and delightful Lori is our hostess this week.



I have some fun snowmen for you today.

Do you see the guy on the end, singing his heart out?

Then there's #2 that looks like he's getting ready to stop the fun.

LOL, it reminds me of my family when we're singing Christmas carols 
of even Happy Birthday!



To make this card, I stamped the image and colored with a combination
of Stampin' Up! Blendabilities and Copics.
I made a mask of the image from Frisket masking film
so I could stamp the trees "behind the snowmen".
Leaving the mask in place, I sponged the night sky around the snowmen.
Then I stamped the dots from Gorgeous Grunge all over the design 
with Whisper White and embossed with Chunky EP, heating from the back
so the powder wouldn't blow away.
(supplies listed below)

Oh my gosh I love this inspiration photo! Charlie Brown Christmas is my favorite holiday show ever! I must try to find time to play along!

... and your card is amazing, Bonnie! Love how you masked off the carollers to put trees in the background, and the falling snow. Gorgeous!

Pat said...

This is gorgeous Bonnie and I so love you carollers and the masking you have done to add that great background. I adore the falling snow too. x

KayM said...

Bonnie, this is just a brilliant card with such a fun image. Marvelous coloring too. Loved the dimensional embossing. First thought it was fragments (which I keep messin' up when I try!). I'm s'posed to be doing the evens at Rudy Day, but saw your name, and just hadda have a look. So happy I did, and TFS. Thanks for joining in 2015's first Rudolph Day challenge, and hope you'll join us each month. Hugs.

Darnell J Knauss said...

This is mind-blowing, Bonnie! It looks like a high-end store-bought card! Your coloring is perfection, as is all that masking for the trees (lots of depth) and the sky! And then the chunks of snow all across ... mwah!! Hugs, Darnell
