Guest Designer for CMC Classroom-The Stamp Fairy-Jake Wintertime

I added a bow and retook a picture of the add on and way better lighting here






Hi everyone!
I'm thrilled to have been chosen as a GDT for the Color Me Creative Challenge Group!
Last year I took a class with Suzanne and would recommend her online classes to anyone wanting to learn more about Copics.
Also, the ladies that hang out in chat over there are a riot! Hi Tina! Glad I was able to play along this week. Thanks!
This month's theme is Winter themed colors and images and
our sponsor is the Stamp Fairy.
I've used this adorable teddie digi called Jake Wintertime.
I've colored the teddie using the dot technique to give it more texture. I was going to pounce a cotton rag with blender on it but liked it enough the way it was so I kept it fun and easy.
The hat and scarf are paper pieced with paper from Fancy Pants Designs paper pack called Winterland. There's also a few pop dots between the layers. Of course as soon as I had the pieces glued down I wished I had cut the striped paper horizontally instead of vertically.
I also paper pieced the snow and snowballs onto some Sookwang paper and sprinkled Glitter Ritz Crystal Clear glitter on top. I love how that ultra fine glitter feels.
I added a strip ofcheese cloth and sprinkled some Frantage around the edges. I've discovered it works way better to press the Frantage into the versamark on your card. I used to just sprinkle and hope some would stay put. Ha! The sentiment squares are also cut out from the same paper pack.
I love the soft icy colors in that pack. 
The bow I added is one I made with the Bow Easy-I can finally make a bow without having to look at the video on Youtube!! Whoowhoo! i'm sure I'll be adding more bows to my cards now.
Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to link up your Winter themed creations with us at CMC

WOW! Your card is perfect in every little detail....including the stripes of the hat. I think having them go vertically is a nice contrast to the background paper. The dot method is so much fun for cute little Jake! And I absolutely adore the way you've added the sentiments. That's going to be finding it's way onto one of my cards very soon. Thanks for the inspiration! Can you tell I kinda' like this card?
