Something a little different from me this week. I do enjoy trying different things as you've probably guessed already!
This is my first attempt at inking over a silhouette (there is probably a technical term for that!). So I cut three snowmen in different sizes on my Cricut, cut a piece of card to resemble snow, and taped them all down onto a piece of white card. I then set to work with different coloured inks, very naughty of me but I used the ink pads directly, hence the lines, but I quite like the effect.
I then peeled off the snowman family and VOILA! I didn't know whetehr to stick the hat and acarf etc on, but decided it looked better with. And then just added some snowflakes and oraganza ribbon to finish.
I like it. Hope you do too!
My first entry this week in CHNC "snowman" challenge.
I'm off out for a meal now with my old boss and friends. All you can eat Chinese....I'm coming to get you!

I hope you've enjoyed your meal. Sadly, I can't see your card as it says the image has been moved or deleted - it sounds great though x

That background is just so effective makes one think of an icy cold wind blowing. Excellent idea.
