Card Sketch Tuesday #155

Hello everyone! Today and last night it's been raining hard and the we've had wind storm warnings posted several times! I sure hope those big tall evergreen's stay firmly planted in the ground!
Anyway, here is sketch #155. This measures the normal A2 size. The panels measure 1 1/2 x 5 and the square in the middle is 2".

I just got some Kaisercraft designer paper from HSN and thought that I had bought a variety pack. Nope, it's all the same! 10 pieces of two sided paper in each pack - this is called Dash a way all - Vixen. I like that it's different on both sides and pretty thick paper. I added a few red rhinestones to the corners of the papers.

The snowman stamp and the sentiment are from The Angel Company and they're retired. It was a limited edition stamp from a few years ago. I colored him with Copic Ciao markers and got a little creative with the B00 frost blue marker. I colored on a piece of plastic and then used my colorless blender to pick up the blue and blended it in the snowman body. With snowman being all white, I wanted to do a little shading and decided to play around a bit. I kind of like the ice blue effect I ended up with. What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

ETA: Here's another spin on this card from Stef (glitterbabe)!

You really have a way with the sketch challenges, not an easy thing for me. I guess I over think it! I love color combo and I got that snowman!
