Fab 'n' Funky Challenge #49 - Forget me not!...

Hi all!
I thought I'd better quickly do a post about this weeks Fab'n'Funky challenge while I have five minutes.

This weeks challenge is called........."Forget me not"
We would like you to rummage through your crafting stash and use a long forgotten stamp or alternatively look through your computer hard drive and use a long forgotten digi image. We are all guilty of neglecting areas of our stash and now is the time to get these poor images out, give them a dusting off and let them out into the daylight this week.

So for my DT sample, I just had to use my ''Frosty'' stamp, who has been neglected for some time (probably about 2 years!!)gathering dust on my shelf, along with his friends Santa & Rudolph. I'll try and give them an outing sometime soon aswell. The trio are by ''Hampton Arts''.

Frosty is very simple to colour. After inking him up in black Memento, I used Promarkers; Dusky Rose, Cardinal, Crimson & Ice Grey1 to colour. Then I spritzed him in Crafters Companion Iridescent glitter varnish for a bit of sparkle!

I then framed him using Spellbinders scalloped frame dies.

For my snowflake I used Spellbinders Create a Flake dies (on special offer at Pink Gem Designs).
The flourish is a Sizzix die by Basic Grey.


I also used my Martha Stewart zig zag punch,
Dp, card blank & sentiment were from Craftwork Cards.
Cardstock is gorgeous Bazzill Bling.

Challenges I am entering into;
I Love Promarkers #41....snowmen
The Crafty Pad....Christmas sparkle
Sweet Stampin...snowflakes
Oldie But A Goodie....glitter
(I have used a glitter brad, glitter ribbon and Crafters Companion glitter spray on the image, just wish the photo did it justice, lol)

Thanks so much for looking :-)
Back later to catch up on some commenting......

Lovely card Jenny, Frosty looks very happy to see daylight again and top up hid vitamin D levels!
You sound as busy as I am at the moment......just no time left in the day. Somebody should go on Dragons Den and see if they can get backing for a "26 hour day"!
