Default Texas Snowman by mrslaird - VSNDEC14K - Saturday, Dec. 13 - 6 pm EST

Challenge Title: Texas Snowman
Hostess: mrslaird (Paula)
Keyword: VSNDEC14K
Date: Dec 13th, 6PM EST

I love "Frozen"! It's now one of my favorite animated films and that is saying a lot! I live in Southeast Texas and we pretty much need Elsa and her magical snow powers to get anywhere near enough snow for a snowman. Growing up, my grandmother had a little water globe with a hat, carrot, and three little black rocks floating in it. The caption? Texas Snowman.

My challenge to you is to make a card with water. You can use an image of water, use a watercoloring technique, or any other way you can work water into your project!

View the gallery for this challenge: Forums at Splitcoaststampers
View the Frozen Master Challenge Thread: Forums at Splitcoaststampers

1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10 P. M. EST ON Sunday, December 21st.
2. You have 1 hour to complete the challenge, unless otherwise noted.....you do not have to count prep time!
3. We have a special gallery for the Frozen VSN.
a) From the "Main Gallery" dropdown list on the first page of the uploader, choose Events and Special Collections.
b) From the Sub-gallery dropdown list, choose Virtual Stamping and Scrapbooking Nights ~ it's the last in the list.
c) From the new sub-gallery dropdown list choose Frozen - it's the very top of the list.
4. Please remember to put in the correct keyword VSNDEC14K when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.


It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure your layout is seen. THANKS SO MUCH FOR PLAYING ALONG!!!

Wow, what a mess. As I link this I am feeling that keeping on smiling, as exhorted by my sentiment, is about the only thing to do. It's that or cry - especially since it's the first time I've had a re-inker spill for a LONG time. I was rushing too much; I should have abandoned plan A when it was obviously not coming together.

I watercolored with my card, I forget about that technique, it worked great to add color touch to my card

hey Paula, i wanted to show you what happens to the water in the bird bath if we don't plug it in. It's been in the forties so i unplugged it and last night the temps dropped again.

A few years back we purchased this bird bath with a plug in to keep the water open for our feathered friends. It's uncanny how they know not to bathe in it in the winter time. Smart little things. Bird Brain?? i think they are clever.

Paula, thanks for being hostess and thanks for the challenge. I do not know if I took the "WATER" in the right light. I used water to paint!
