Digital Tuesday "Text Me"

This week at Digital Tuesday the challenge is "Text Me"- add some text on your creation.
Our sponsor this week is Crafty Sentiments  who are giving away 3 digital images of the winners choice.
The design team also got a choice of images to play with, and I was going to use a cute Halloween one like some of the other dt did, but I don't give Halloween cards, so although I love making them, there's really no point because it would just end up in the bin! So I used a cute little snowman instead and made my first Christmas card of the year!

 I printed the image onto iridescent cryogen white card and coloured with Copics, and also added some star dust stickles to  the tree and on his hat.
I first used Cryogen a few months back and loved the shimmer it gave to images, so I ordered some last week, but the lady sent me the iridescent one instead of the one I ordered and I really don't like it!
It does have a nice shimmer, but it's not so good to colour on. You have to work real quick because the ink dries fast and then it's so hard to blend.
So I won't even be buying that card again! lol
The bottom paper I used is by Raspberry Road and the other two are Websters Pages.
You ca't really see here, but the green paper has text all over it.
The bigger snowflakes are cut with Marianne Dies and the small ones were done with a punch (I think it's by Dovecraft but I will have to double check).
I also added some stickles to the snowflakes and added some dewdrops from Inky Impressions and some die cut christmas trees which I found in my stash, which I also added some stickles too.

And a close up of the cute but horribly coloured image. Oh, I also added stickles on the snow :)

So that's my card for Digital Tuesday and I hope you will join in with this weeks challenge.

Love all the shimmery stickles! Perfectly snowy. I don't send Halloween cards either, but I have had to make 1 so far. Now that I've got one in school maybe I'll send it in for her teacher. Wish I knew someone with a Halloween birthday. Sorry to hear your hand is still giving you troubles.
