SUPPLIES:
Snowball Fight - Make it Crafty
Snowflake Chippies - Make it Crafty
Word Art by Box of Colours
Faber Castell Polychromo & Caran D'Ache Pablo coloured pencils
Kraft card
Silver paper
Recycled Parcel Paper
Frost Points - Stampendous
Snowflake peel offs - Craft Creations
Stickles Diamond Glitter Glue
Frost White ink - Color Box
 
This creation has been a real labour of love, taking 5 days to complete!
Having created the basic scene with the digital stamps in Word
 I finished it off by drawing in the background by hand!!
 
But I did not stop there!
 I could not find a suitable background paper so I created my own with the aid of the parcel paper, white ink and snowflake stamp
and
my own sentiment in Photoshop Elements!
 
 
Now it is with sadness that I have to let you know this is in fact my final creation for
Make it Crafty 
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Zoe and the rest of the team for having me
and wish them all the best for 2013
 
 
And as it is nearly Christmas
I thought I would post my seasonal word art as a freebie

 
 
 
Now don't forget to leave a comment below before December 31st and stop by the Make it Crafty Store blog to 'open the door' to the other inspirational projects!

Thanks for playing along with us and I would like to wish
you all a very
Merry Christmas
