Warm Memories


Just Us Girls Charity Challenge
Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combo #24
Splitcoast Sketch Challenge #255

Featured here is a very special charity stamp in memory of Henry Anderson. Paper Makeup Stamps offers it as both a digi image and a rubber stamp with the proceeds going to Henry's family. JUGs is hosting a charity challenge to make a card using the Henry Snow Angel image.

I used today's sketch from Splitcoast and the color combo of Bashful Blue, Real Red and Certainly Celery from Scrapmaster's Paradise. I printed the Henry digi image and colored him in with a blender pen and inks. I added my favorite dazzling diamonds glitter to the snow. Henry is cut out and popped up over the blue panel with dimensional tape.

For the green background, I took the three snowflakes from Snow Happy and arranged them all on the same acrylic block. That made stamping my background a breeze! I am so enjoying unmounted stamps! :) The sentiment is one by Great Impressions that I picked up from a local craft store and it is stamped on shimmery white paper for some extra snow sparkle.
