Verve's holiday release -day 3 sneak peek

Today is day 3 of Verve's Holiday releases and day 3 of the sketch challenges! Today you get a peek of 2 sets, Snowflake Splendor and Snow Wonderful. There are more deets on the release on Verve's blog and you can check out the Verve forum post to get all the deets on the sketch challenges. Let's just say there are lots of prizes involved!
For this card, I used a snowman and sentiment from the Snow Wonderful set. I love the fun prints and colors of Deja Views DP from the Winter collection. I thought they would be perfect for this little guy. The snowflakes are from punches and the bling are from the Kaiser Scrapbook rhinestones pack (you know, the swirly one). I put stickles all over the bottom of the snowman for snow. He is colored with Copic markers. I outlined him with the C1 Cool Grey and then around the outside used the Y11 Pale Yellow marker -I then blended/lightened the edges of both with my 00 Blender pen. This is a cool technique I learned from Marianne's blog, I Like Markers. She has some great tips, this one was how to "color" snow.

Card deets:
Stamps - snow wonderful, canvas
Paper - real red, bashful blue, white, Winter by Deja Views
Accessories - copic markers, lots of bling, snowflake punches, white satin ribbon, rectangle nesties, SU scallop border punch
