This card is for this week's JBWW Challenge. Wanted to have some fun with a different layout and some new stamps. The image was stamped on Georgia Pacific white cardstock and colored with Copic Markers. Itís very hard to tell the photo, but the stars on the ladies scarf, the dots on her hat and the manís bow tie and buttons are colored with a gold Spica maker. The snowflakes have been highlighted with a Sakura Stardust pen. The edges of the image and the sentiment were sponged with Old Paper distress ink and then highlighted with Walnut Stain distress ink. The edges of the background panels, BasicGrey Figgy, were sponged with the Walnut Stain distress ink and then sewn to a panel of River Rock. The circle was cut out using a Coluzzle and the edges were distressed. To make the edges curl more, I sprayed with paper with water, and then took my scissors to scrape along the edges. Before the edges dried, I curled the distressed area with my fingers, working the paper in toward the middle. Once the circle was completely dry, the edges were sponged with Walnut Stain distress in. This panel was then sewn to the background panel. Once I had finished assembling the card, I added Tulip White Puffy Paint for the snow, and used my heat gun to make it puff up.
