TIOT37, SC246 - Snowy Days Are Coming!

Welcome to this week's Try it out Tuesday from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design! This week our challenge is to use Flower Soft on our projects (keyword: TIOT37)! I'm fairly new to Flower Soft but I am loving it! I got the new Polar White in my last order from Susana - not only is it a great addition to flower bouquets, but it makes fabulous snow! As soon as I saw it in person I knew I had to use it to make snow at least once. It already has some snowy shimmer to it, but I added a bit more glitter, just to be safe! ;)

I have missed all my sweet images while I was rehabbing my hand, LOL. So I just had to ink up one of the cutie pies from the Victoria Case for SCACD Hearts & Hugs Collection 2! This is Autumn. I went to "the old standby" for a sketch today, I used this week's Sketch Challenge from Splitcoast (SC246). Here's the sketch:

I started off by stamping her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink (omitting the leaves) and coloring with Copic markers. I gave her nice, rosy cheeks and freckels - couldn't resist that! I paper pieced her tights (too cold for bare legs up here in the great white north)! Then I laid down the snow by her feet - she's having such fun she even kicked up a big clump in front of her boot (obviously, she doesn't have to shovel). Then I added some Shamrock Green Flower Soft to the band of her fuzzy hat. Lots of Kaisercraft Pearls in the corners and she's ready for winter!

A BIG announcement from Susana's Custom Art Card Design too!! The September release is coming up fast!! Next Tuesday the 29th - Susana will be releasing TWO new mini sets by two fabulous artists!! One is from Elisabeth Bell and the other from Victoria Case. All I can tell you is they are absolutely fun and fabulous The store blog Follow Your Heart will have blog candy with sneak peeks beginning on September 26th and running through 11 PM EST on the 28th. Hop on over to check it out. On the 29th you'll get to see cards and projects made with these new stamps on all the DT blogs and the store blog.
