The Graveyard Snowman

It is time for a new challenge over at I Love Promarkers, and this time we want to see your Snowmen. Our sponsor is Col Art (Letraset)  who are offering a promarker set. I have used Selfie Santa from Dr Digi House of Stamps for my creation.

I used a gold base card and folded it backwards so that the colour was on the inside. I then folded the top in half to create an easel card. The base I layered with snowflakes, from a free Christmas pack from last year, and a penguin gel sticker that I got in a craft clearance. I then layered a character patterned paper to the front fold of the top part of the card. The penguins are part of the patterned paper and I thought they worked really well with the image. The image was coloured with promarkers (ok so I did not actually colour it this time as the hubby wanted to join in - so he did the colouring for this one, and I think he did quite well actually). I cut this to shape and then stuck it down on three sides. The tag was layered onto pearlescent purple card and then slotted in behind the image. Finally I added a foam snowflake to hold the tag in place.

I was thinking this card might be nice as a voucher card - the voucher could slot in with the tag.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:

I also finished colouring my majestic gorilla:
And here is the latest audiobook review:

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaimen
A family is murdered in the middle of the night, but the baby makes his way out to the graveyard. Jack is determined to finish the job and with his special senses follows the boy to the graveyard. The boy should end up dead, however the residents of the graveyard itself get involved. The boy grows up among the graveyard residents, and develops powers of the graveyard. However, as he gets older he wants more contact with the living, but this has more dangers than he could imagine. A very good book, well written and amusing.

Thanks for looking on this cold and frosty evening,
