Frosty The Snowman at Winter Wonderland

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you have had a good week.

I can hardly believe it's Friday already and time for a new challenge over at


and this week Team Snowflake are sharing some Festive inspiration on the theme


Last year I made this wall hanging and when I went to the GNPE with my beautiful friend Claire earlier this year I bought another one to decorate and here it is:

I started with painting the letters with Gesso and then when dry I painted over with Indigo Blu's Grandma's Teacup Acrylic Paint then dry brushed over with some Vanilla White and added a touch of Chunky White Frantage here and there.
I stamped the uber cute LOTV 'Hats Off' snowman image with Archival Black and heat embossed with clear embossing powder and then coloured with Copics  - I also added a touch of Wink of Stella clear sparkle.
Snowflakes - Marianne Createables - heat embossed with Stamp n Bond and then covered in Glamour Dust - the sparkle doesn't show in the photos :o(
Adhesive pearls from stash.
