Let It Snow Pink
by Trina Pham


Happy Sunday everyone.  October is breast cancer awareness month and there are several challenges honoring it with a pink theme.  I’m sure you’ve figured out where my inspiration came from. 😉  One of the challenges is generously donating $4 per entry to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  Pretty amazing, right?  So if you are interested in entering to donate, head on over to the Jingle Belles challenge HERE.  

Okay, now onto my simple pink Christmas card.  Started by die cutting the Charming Snowman Collage die from mixed media paper resulting in this.


Adhered a torn snowy ground mask to the bottom of the panel, and ink blended Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry distress inks (DI) with blender brushes to create the bright pink sky.  After the photo was taken, I lightly blended Black Soot DI around the top and side edges.  Spritz it with water then blot with a paper towel to give it texture.


Die cut the snowman again, this time from white glitter paper in the Frosted Glitter Pad.  Colored the outline piece with Copic Sketch markers C00, C1, C3 and 100 (arms), then inlaid it into the panel. 


For better details and definition, the hat and scarf were die cut from alcohol ink friendly paper, colored with Copic markers then pieced on top.  The mixed media eyes, nose and buttons were also colored with Copic markers then inlaid back.  Black heat embossed the sentiment from Spirit of Christmas stamp set with clear glitter embossing powder and mounted the panel to a white card base to finish.


Not my usual or comfortable color to create with, but it was a fun change up.  And that’s it for today.  Thank you for joining me.  Have a wonderful week.
