Welcome to this week's challenge at Totally Gorjuss is ANYTHING GOES - SNOW Snow to give you a little inspiration here's my DT card. :)

I wanted to make quite a simple card.  To start with I matted a piece of blue card onto a scalloped 5 x 5 card base, then stamped the 'snow' image 3 times onto white card and coloured sections of it in with my Derwent Pencils and Baby Oil. I usually use Sansdor with soft pencils but I thought I would give the BO a go, I was very surprised as I found it to be quite good particularly as there's no odour whereas Sansdor's smell can be quite strong. To add a bit of sparkle I added glitter to the word 'Snow' on one of the stamped images layers, then cut out sections from each layer and mounted them on the card with foam pads.  I drew small irregular circles on the background card and coloured them in with a white gel pen.  To finish I added a strip of ribbon and some gems, and 2 diecut glittered card snowflakes with a big red brad on top.  

Isn't this 'snow' cute! I've had this wooden stamp for years, when acrylic stamps weren't even a sparkle in someone's eye.

So here's what I used.
Wooden Stamp: Whipper Snapper Designs 'Think Snow'
Paper/Card: Plain Blue Card
Pencils: Prisma and Derwent Coloursoft Pencils
Dies: Cuttlebug Cut/Emboss Snowflake, Marianne Designs LR0125
Other: Johnsons Baby Oil, Copic Black Fineline, White Gel Pen, Crystal Glitter, First Edition 'Nordic Christmas' Embellishment Pack, AC Ribbon, Gems
