Timeless Tuesday go neutral with colored image


Well what is neutral you might ask??? According to the inter-net it can be black, white, gray, ivory etc. To be safe I went with plain old white...devoid of color since I needed to color my image. And speaking of coloring my image, well I'm sure when you were small, your Mom used the term " waste not, want not" and so I decided to use left over yarn to knit Frosty's scarf. Looks like a remenant of Joseph's technicolor coat, but I know I did not waste in this case and used just about all the colors. For my textured background I ran my card stock through the Big Shot to get a snow like look cause after all Frosty is a "snow"man. Didn't have a Flourish stamp for this...Sorry, so I used a snowman I've had for years and who I thought was really quite cute. This is put out by Print Works. Used my colored pencils and a blender, which by now you know is my favorite way to color up my images. Did a die cut from Spellbinder's label # 3 that I bought on special at good old Hobby Lobby.Also found the little blingers of glittery red and used those for holly berries. Love that place and when I visit DD we head on over. Happy Tuesday to you all and I'll be back again soon.

I am such a dork! When I read that you knitted his scarf, I thought you used multiple colors of yarn for the scarf so I quickly clicked on the picture to see this "wonder". LOL You certainly got me that time! Best, Curt
