The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a snowy card or scene. I went a little out of the box... I have been having fun creating chipboard ornaments, and I used an older set, too... I love how this little bicycle set has accessory stamps for different occasions, so I used the little Christmas tree in the basket...
I leaned the bicycle on a brick wall (I used a stencil for that effect) and colored the scene using Shinhan Premium Watercolors. The snow was added when the scene was dry, using a white acrylic marker.
The main body of the ornament is made with 4 layers of chipboard (I used a cereal box), glued together. The scene is painted on watercolor paper. After all the glue was set and dried, I sealed the entire piece with a matte varnish.
Here's the die I used for my project, but any shaped die would work.
