PTW: Charlie & snowman

PTW challenge was a lovely sketch by Katharina, so it was only right that I used another of my Charlie stamps from Whiff of Joy, even if I am a bit late!


Materials:

  • Images: 'Charlie building snowman' from 'Charlotte & Charlie' christmas range of stamps available from Whiff of Joy only. The cute snowman sentiment is from Elzybells . Flourishes round the edges of the image are from Inkadinkado xmas swirl set
  • Colouring: watercoloured with Tim Holtz distress inks and cosmic shimmer paints
  • Papers: Dovecraft 'winter wonderland' pack
  • Others: ribbon & brads from stash. Fiskars threading water border punch and heidi swapp distresser tool used.

Tried to take close up to show shimmery-ness (I know no such word, just made it up!) of snowman but it's impossible to capture it!
