Herb the Snowman

Hi there Friends!!!
Today I have a card with WOJ~~Herb the snowman again by artist Elisabeth Bell :)  This time he is in blue--my fave color LOL
Followed this sketch at Bunny Zoe Crafts
Colored Herb by Artist Elisabeth Bell with copics.  The sky was made with a free cut piece of cs and TH stormy sky DI.   Papers are MS cardstock and Kand Co dp.  Swirls are the Magnolia doohickey on right and a segment of HC Belle Rose die on left--finished them off with small pearls.  The large pearls were colored with copic markers B37 and 34.  The snowflake is a combo of Creative Impressions shimmer snowflakes, a metal spacer and Wild Orchid moonstone brad.
I have to share that I got this really neat paint from The SCACD store and I just love it!!!  I used DecoArt blue sapphire glamour dust glitter paint and Holy Moly does it ever sparkle~~LOVE IT!!!!  I used it on edges of snowman, circles on gloves and scarf, dazzled his hat alittle and lastly the ground cover :D  If you click on pic to enlarge you will see it better :)  SPARKLE CITY!!!!!!!
Here is Herb in brown and pink tones~~Which do you like??? To read about this Herb--Go Here :)

Hiya Mary Lou, WOW, this is one awesome card, the design, colours and that image are wonderful. I have been looking at the pink and brown one as well, I have taken a long time to make up my mind but I am being totally honest and I love that Pink & Brown one, it is my all time favourite colour combo, but there is just something about the look that appeals to me.

Been checking to see what all I've missed and you've wowed me with these gorgeous creations. I love Herb and the 2 Christmas cards. LOTV card is gorgeous with the adorable teddy and stars.

Never heard of sheer coloring so going to have to find something on that one but I love what you've done with and the design. I think your coloring is amazing.

The EB Parasol card is so beautful with the blues and gorgeous butterfly.

Thanks so much sweetie for the comment on the baby post. She is adorable and will be spoiled beyond belief, but she still has to mind when she gets I appreciate you keeping up with me even though I haven't been around lately. "Love & Hugs" Carol
