Frosty the Snowman

Hello friends.  I'm so glad you could stop by!


I found this This stamp is by Deep Red Big Red snowman stamp around Christmas last year 
and didn't get a chance to use it.

I'm glad to have an excuse to break him out!

I stamped him with Smokey Gray Versafine ink and
colored him with Zigs and a water brush.

As usual, I went outside the lines with the red and had
to perform surgery.

I kind of like the look of him popped up and framed.

CAS Christmas is doing snowmen this month.
I'll pop him in the gallery.


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Such a cute card. And your watercolor is great. The layout is perfect and popping up the snowman in the frame does look really nice.

He's fabulous, Bonnie. Great job of coloring with the Zigs. I find the red runs more than other colors so I rarely used water with it.

Susan said...

I really like the look of him fussy cut, popped up and framed so it might have been a happy accident that you went outside the lines with the red! The snowbank for your sentiment and the embossed background are perfect finishing touches.

Outstanding coloring with zigs, Bonnie! You achieved such rich colors and shading on him and love the framing. Still coveting that Kars embossing folder too!

Your snowman is adorable! He looks great in that frame. I am so envious every time you use that Kars embossing folder. It is just perfect. Sigh.

Such a fun snowman, Bonnie! I think you did an amazing job coloring him and I love all the snowflakes in the background! I also love how you framed him out on this card...so CUTE!

What a cute Snowman, Bonnie! Your Zig coloring is amazing! I especially love how you added light blue shadows. All the white surrounding him makes him really pop. The stitched frame over the snowy background panel is such a great idea! Hideko xx

Love that cute snowman and how you have colored him and framed him.
Have a great weekend.

I love your brightly beautifully coloured snowman Bonnie. He has such a happy smile. Great background and love that you framed this gorgeous fellow. I love looking at all the fabulous snowmen images and the amazing results. Winter is knocking at my door but not nearly cold enough for snow thank goodness.

I love all the layers of the card. Such a beautifully designed card, embossed background, snowman popping out of the window frame stitched ... I love the colors in which you dressed this snowman.
