Whimsy Inspiration Challenge: Sparkle


It's that time of the month and over at Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Challenge we want to see you sparkle!  Yep, bring on the bling, glitter, Stickles, stardust, and anything else you have in your stash that shines. 

I chose to work with Stamp Art Design by Kathryne cute "Frosty Friends."  Before I show you my creation using this fun image, I must apologize because the Snowman lost his frosty friend in a terrible scissor accident.  Never cut out an image and watch the Voice at the same time.

Here's my creation...

Snowman's eyes
I decided to make a "Snowman's eyes" gift set.  I had several of those little plastic containers and I filled them with dark chocolate covered yogurt raisins.  Mmmm...these things are yummy and good for you.  I thought they looked like snowman's eyes.  I colored my image using Copics and added Stickles around the snowman's face to make him shine.  I didn't stop there with the bling, because I used my Copic Spica pens to add sparkle to his hat and scarf.  You probably can't see it well, but believe me when I tell you this little guy shines.  I also added some snow to his nose using Snow Writer and some more Stickles.  I finished this guy off with ribbon and a bling gem on his scarf.
