Holiday Greetings...In Yo Face!

Stampendous has gotten together with Clearsnap this week for some fun.  This was a little outside my comfort zone (yes, i actually have one).  I decided to play with the Colorbox Paintbox pigment and a water brush to create this snowy fun image by Stampendous.  I finally got into the groove and had a hard time stopping.

 I first stamped with Colorbox Archival "Seattle Sky" gray dye ink pad.  Then I took my water brush and robbed it on the Paintbox ink pad and "watercolored in the image.  As you know if you are used to coloring with copics it isn't going to be as vivid, but I like the soft look.  After I finished coloring it in I got ready to get messy.
I sprinkled Stampendous Chunky white embossing enamel on the image and heated from underneath.  After some card sewing I placed the image on the card and started to decorate with hand dyed cheese cloth, buttons and pearls.  Next I took some adhesive and added Purple Color Fragments, Fuchsia glass glitter and Halo glitter.  Did I mention I didn't want to stop?

This is about the only snow we see in Phoenix Arizona...LOL.  Not too pleased.  Good thing it didn't happen in my lap and I was able to put it back in my jar.  I don't know what I would do if I didn't have my Chunky White!  Stampendous Image "cling Snowball Fight" can be found HERE

Join us on the hop and see all the lovely creations.  If you comment along the way i am sure goodies are possibly in your future.  Have fun!!

Love this card. I don't mean to be dense, but HOW did you get the chunky white embossing powder to stay in little white balls? And what kind of adhesive did you use before heating from below? Thanks so much...just darling!
