That Craft Place Challenge with a Paperartsy Twist

Hi ya, now I bet your wondering about the title, well I really wanted to enter this weeks challenge over at the Paperartsy Blog and this weeks inspirational designer is the amazing Alison Bomber, please pop over there and see her work, it's truly awesome.  So the only way to enter was to combine it with my DT piece for That Craft Place Challenge Blog which is Christmas.  I love how Alison uses so much texture and this inspired me for this piece.  Initially I was going to use one of the Jo Firth Young stamps as a snowman but he looked a bit flat so I ended up making my own, not sure if he looks a bit creepy though lol lol.

It was so difficult to take a picture lol, all products are at the bottom of
the page, most of them are Paperartsy.
All the texture is made by their Grunge Paste, it's the best product I 
have ever used (along side their Fresco paint lol).
It was like icing a cake, now I have never ever managed to get
icing where it was perfect, but I can imagine it would
feel and go on just like grunge paste lol.

Right I shall be off, hope your all having a wonderful day, I shall be back with another post tomorrow :-).
Happy Crafting :-)
Lots of Hugs

I love your sparkly snow scene - what a great way to use the texture - and your Frosty Snowman is adorable, not at all scary! Gorgeous make, Kerry - thank you so much for playing along this week!
