All White That Sparkles


Haven't played the Colour Create challenge in quite a while but I was very inspired by Heather's all white challenge. Even though we were allowed to colour our image I decided to go for the monochrome look. My snowman was completely watercoloured using stardust pens so is very much more shimmery than shows in the main photo but hopefully you can get an idea in the close up. I've used an old Sketch Saturday sketch and was quite liberal with the stickles and glamour dust so I'm also entering this to the Simon Says Stamp All that Sparkles challenge.
