Duck - Snowball Warrior

(outside)

You better not pout....or the Snowball Warrior will have to take some action and believe me, his aim is spot on!

 
(inside)

It's the second Wednesday of the month and that means it's time for the Guest Design Team Challenge and a freebie from Dude Time Doodles.  Head straight over to the Dude Time Doodles Challenge Blog to pick up your own Snowball Warrior, use him for something fun and creative, and upload him for your chance to be a gdt.  You won't be disappointed!




For my card, I used the out of the box technique and a new Sizzix Framelits (Scallop Oval) to cut out this cutie.  I was going for a night sky and used Copic markers for the sky and for the image.  Liquid applique was used to give the snow balls dimension and to make the snow flakes.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC and I added a couple snowflake stickers where the brads go.


On the inside, I created the second part of the sentiment on my computer, cut it out with Lifestyle Crafts Nested Scallop Ovals #3 and shaded with a Copic marker.  The snowflake border is from Memory Box and I embossed both the border as well as the stack of snow balls on the inside of the card with glittery embossing powder that I made myself.  (I combined glitter with a jar of clear embossing powder and I love the effect.)  You can see it really well on the close up of the snowballs, but I couldn't capture a good picture of the snow flake border (but it looks just like the snow balls - lots of sparkle).

Be sure to visit the other design team members, as well as our guest designer for this month, cg, and see their takes on this fierce warrior.  You have until next Tuesday to upload your creation to the DTD Challenge Blog.
