Snow Much Fun - Paper Players 105

After the extreme heat we have been experiencing, we finally had some rain, but in the form of a severe thunderstorm accompanied by hail.  The hail did a number on my geraniums, so I spent part of today dead heading.  It's a bit cooler today, but still hot.  It's almost cooling to be making Christmas cards.
For this challenge with the Paper Players here I thought I would use some of the new Early Espresso Core'dinations card stock and an old friend.



The image was stamped with Stazon ink and coloured with markers and blender pen. and then die cut using the apothecary accents framelits.  With a stipple brush and Marina Mist ink a light shading was created around the outer edge of the framelits.  The edges were pierced using the template in the the new Paper piercing pack essential.Some dazzling diamonds completed the illusion of snow on the snowman.

Stamps: Snow Much Fun, Many Merry Messages
Inks: Stazon, SU markers, Marina Mist
Papers: Lucky Limeade, Early Espresso Core'dinations card stock, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Apothecary accents framelits, Lacy Brocade embossing folder, Stampin' Sanding block, 1" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, Stampin' Dimensional, Dazzling diamonds, Blender pen, Paper Piercing pack.
