Let there be snow

English / Italiano

Hello Crafters!

Here we are to a brand new challange over Simon Says Stamp!


This week’s theme over Simon Says Stamp Monday Challange is “Let there be snow!” and for this theme I created this TAG with a snowman in it!

I covered the entire tag with pieces of the Vintage Paper by Simon Says Stamp and covered it with a very thin layer of gesso. I mixed the gesso with a bit of water because I still wanted the paper to show through. Then with a spatula I applied the distress paint in Salty Ocean color. I set aside to dry.
When it was dry I added some stamps here and there. As you can read by the list of supplies at the bottom of this post, I used unconventional stamp to create this Winter scene. This to show you how versatile can be a stamp!


With the white paint I created the little snow man and let it dry. Then I took some pieces of vintage paper and I roughly cut them to mimic an hat and a scarf that i then glued over the snow man. Then I took everything to the sewing machine and added some stitches details here and there. I didnt want to be precise, I simply stitched around the shapes to define them.


I mimed the snow effect with some Coarse paste I had and when everything was dry I simply added some more details such as lighting and shadow with distress markers.
Tim Hotlz stickers are as always perfect for any occasion.

For this challange Simon Says Stamp kindly offers a $50 gift voucher to shop over Simon Says Stamp!
