Whiff of Joy stamps & Sketch Saturday challenge

Yaaaaay, my Whiff of Joy stamps arrived yesterday, so I wasted no time in inking them up - well one of them anyway!! I coloured the image with my new Promarkers, but unfortunately the image smudged and was quite streaky so I had to start all over again - this time using my good old Marvys..... The card I stamped onto was quite shiny so I guess that had something to do with it. I added Icicle Stickles to the snowballs and snow, then layered the image onto silver sparkly card.
The scrummy papers and snowflake brads are from Dovecraft - think I am going to be using quite a lot of these (especially as Barry bought me 3 more packs when he went to the Range this evening) I asked him to get me a pack in each colourway - there was only the one colour so he bought the rest of the packs on the rack - earning himself a few brownie points !!
Blue card embossed with Cuttlebug Snowflake folder. I am pleased with the way this has turned out after the false start.....
I took several photos but couldn't manage to get one without the shiny bit to the left of the image, when I turned off the flash the colours looked quite dull.

Really wonderful card, Charlie is a darling! Thanks for your comment. I used 'Fluffy Stuff' by Woodware on my card. It is similar to Liquid Applique. You need to use a heat gun with it......this makes it rise and gives the fluffy effect......good for Santa's beard and also sheep etc! Most craft shops should stock it. HTH
