Art Impressions 'Let the Bells Ring'

Art Impressions is one of my fave companies, they have lots of quirky fun images which I love, but they also have beautifully stylish Watercolor Stamps too, something for everyone and every occasion! ;-)

I made this card today using a 'Let The Bells Ring' Cling Stamp and to join in with the Art Impressions Challenge I made a matching envelope too ;-) 



I used a MISTI Stamping Tool to stamp the image is Memento Ink, coloured with Copic Markers and the overstepped with Simon's Intense Black Ink to give it a really black outline.

I decided not to use the oval die in the set and simply cut around his bottom and used an Action Wobble to give his bottom a shake. I really wanted to add a 'does my bum look big in this' sentiment but stuck with the bells in the end ;-) 



For the background I smooshed some Broken China Oxide Ink onto a craft mat, spritzed with water and then pounced some bubble wrap into it, this gives it a 'snowy' look, I repeated this step with Faded Jeans Oxide Ink too. 
I then went and had a lovely cappuccino and did the newspaper crossword while waiting for the inks to dry. 
The next step was to use a Falling Snow Stencil and White Embossing Powder followed by a sprinkling of Prisma Glitter. 

Jingle Jingle Wobble Wobble ;-) 



and I finished the inside, I should have used the Misti here too, but as it was a small stamp what could go wrong! Of course I dropped the bow, but luckily it actually looks OK!! *phew*




Thanks for looking! I hope you all have a great weekend!!

Lorraine, your card is so fun and filled with awesome techniques! Your bubble wrap technique for the background is one I must try as it is perfect to set off the snowman! You really went all out with the pretty decorations on the inside! How fun it would be to receive a card with that awesome envelope! Thank you for joining in the Art Impressions Card and Envelope Challenge!
