Once there was a Snowman. . .

. . . snowman, snowman. Once there was a snowman - cute, cute, cute. Then I tried to color him, color him, color him. Then I tried to color him and he went kapoot! LOL okay well if you don't know this little song than this probably doesn't make much sense, but that was what came to my mind when I finally finished this card.



Supplies: Pattern Paper by Basic Grey; Image by Ellybellz? (RAKed image ^_~); 2008 Holiday Tags and ribbon by Papertrey Ink; CS, brads, inks, and markers by CTMH; white gel pen by Sakura

So I was making this card for the 10th day of the 12 days of Christmas challenge on Paper Craft Planet. It's 9 o'clock at night my time when I start, so 11 EST and the project deadline is 12 midnight EST. I wasn't coloring fast or anything, but I slipped when shading the snowman with the blue. So I thought, why don't I try to use my blender pen to fix it? BIG mistake, lol. The first rule of playing with a RAK image, especially if you only have one, is to not try something new on it. For instance, trying to use a blender pen to fix a slip-up on non watercolor paper. So the snowman gets totally fuzzied and not in a cute way. Well, this is the only image I had so I was determined to save him. Suddenly liquid applique came to mind and well, as they say, the rest is history. He doesn't look too awful in the picture but I assure you, the camera is being nice to him, hehehe. Not every card can come out perfect though, right? The boy came out darling though! I gave him red hair like my hubby, so I suppose this is Paul :D Anyway, thanks for coming over to see my poor snowman card! Have a Merry Wednesday!

I'm with Jena, your version of the song is very cute. I'll probably have it in my head the next time we sing it in primary.

As for your card, it looks great to me and that you purposefully meant to have the snowman in liquid applique. Great job saving your image.
