Snowman Treats

Snowman Treats 

Hi everyone, I hope that you're all warm & well, Brrrr it's definitely turning rather 
chilly here on the north east coast of the UK.
Well December is almost here and I don't know about you, but I have still so 
much to do, I've still got cards to make, write out and send and lots of presents 
still to buy, but I'm going to try to avoid the Christmas crowds this year and do 
most of my shopping online, I think it will be far less stressful. 

My post today is something that I made for a stocking filler for a friends little boy. 
I made him a bag of snowman poop lol using a small cello bag, some mini 
white marshmallows and the label was made using Mitzi's "WE LOVE SNOWMEN" 
image which you can find in her Etsy shop by clicking on the link above.

I coloured this cut image using a selection of Pro/Flexmarkers and I added some 
hunkydory Glitter to the fur trim on the snowman's hat.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges

Aurora Wings Challenge #20

Aurora Wings Challenge #20

Hi everyone, It's challenge time once again over at

And the theme this month is....

For my Aurora Wings DT make I have tried my hand at making a 
wooden jewellery box together with a pendant which features a beautiful 
Aurora Wings image called "PEACOCK MASQUERADE" which you will find 
 in Mitzi's Aurora Wings Etsy Store. You will also find the beautiful 
"ROSE BORDER" digi  there too, that I've decoupaged and used on top of my 
wooden jewellery box.

Things that I've used to make the Jewellery Box

Bare wood wooden lidded box which I then covered in the same wallpaper that I've 
used to updo the drawer fronts of my pine bedroom drawers. I then painted the box with 
primer and then added a coat of white acrylic satin. 

I then coloured up Mitzi's gorgeous "ROSE BORDER" digi image in the same 
colours that I've used my newly decorated bedroom. I coloured the image a further 
three times and fussy cut and layered it up. Next I added the coloured image to the 
top of the jewellery box and then covered over with a layer of construction strength 

I then added some ivory pearl trim around the top of the acetate to cover 
the glue holding the acetate in place, I also added the pearl trim around the 
base of the jewellery box and then again around the mirror inside the lid of 
the box too.

I then lined the box with ivory satin (which was not the easiest of things to do lol) 
and then as a finishing touch I added one of Tim Holtz's locks and keys embellishments.

Both the ROSE BORDER image and the PEACOCK MASQUERADE images 
were coloured using a selection of Promarkers and Flexmarkers. 

To make the pendant I used a silver oval cameo setting together with a glass 
cabochon. I added the coloured PEACOCK MASQUERADE image and 
then covered it with some Diamond Glaze, then popped the glass cabochon 
on top and pressed down lightly to get rid of any air bubbles beneath the glass, 
I then popped it onto a silver chain.

For more information on the new AURORA WINGS CHALLENGE, please pop over

lovely teamies have made for the challenge. We would really love for you
 to come and join in all the fun.
