I'm not sure whether snow has a smell or not, but as my mom visited me two days ago, she said, "It smells like it's going to snow soon". Now, you have three guesses on today's weather. (Hint: it's a perfect match for today's card ;))
With my first creation of 2016 I'd like to invite you to the January Fadengrafik Challenge "Snowmen". Feel free to submit any snowman-themed creation featuring paper embroidery.
As I've been away during the holidays, I thought I'd have to skip this month's DT obligation, until I found this half finished pickpoint project yesterday evening. I've stitched it a while ago, using a colourful yarn my sister gave me one day. However, it turned out to be so colourful that I had no idea how to finish the card. All that came o mind were tiny light blue gemstones, but in the right upper corner, something was missing.
When I realized it was already time for this month's DT task, I thought why not try to find a matching snowman. In fact, I found this guy from freshbreweddesigns to be the perfect match to the blue, green and yellow swirls, and what more: he didn't need much additional work - just a scarf, a little holly, a carrot and tiny white pearls I placed on the spots where the original digi had snowflakes. Meet Mr. Snowman:
In the center of the stitched swirls I placed three big gemstones that fit the smaller ones next to the foliage
As the pattern is stitched directly on the paper of the card, I used a soft mint-coloured cardstock to cover up the sewing on the inside

And just as it seemed we'd be spoiled with blue skies in January as a reward for a rather foggy December, clouds decided to take over and turn everything white.
