Kristina Werner Color Inspiration Challenge #34 - Let it snow

Hi Everyone,

 Kristina Werner  is back with another fun Color Inspiration Challenge (#34) from this picture of yarn that she took in NYC.  

I love yarn - totally makes me want to knit again- which I haven't done in forever - but am totally inspired  to get back into it after seeing this pic of this yummy yarn. The colors were so soft and wintery - so I went with the winter theme and created this snowman card. This was also made for the Stamp Something challenge - where this week's challenge was to create something with snow. So here is the snowman/snowmen/snowpeople card that I had fun making: 

I stamped the snowmen, colored in the scarves with Kristina's colors and then cut out the snowmen image and then applied liquid glaze (its hard to see in this pic). The snowflakes I punched out with photo paper - its kinda cool because it gives it this sheen and nice texture....Its funny in a way to look at this card with the sentiment: "Let it snow" because I made this card before our snowstorm here started. Now, when I look outside what I see is a blur of blowing snow and howling winds - wow! its amazing how quickly it went from freezing rain to blowing snow! Talk about winter weather ! 

Well, I am off to make some hot hearty soup for lunch - hope you are all staying warm!

Thanks for coming over for a visit!!
Ciao for now ;)
Sankari
