A Blue Snowman


With a really gorgeous sketch from Dawny P to work from this week in the Papertake Weekly Challenge I was able to piece together the work that I had been doing last week using a really lovely stamp I purchased from the States from Plum Purdy. I stamped out the image, scanned it into Photoshop and then paper pieced most of the elements of the snowman together from the download paper collection called Misletoe Magic Papers from Ali Folendore. Unfortunately the image did not photograph too well as it was late last night when I had finished it, so I will try and re-take the photo again later later in the week.
