snowman melt in progress

Christmas in July photo challenge

I decided Snowy would like to spend Christmas holidays at the Bay of Islands in NZ, so I used a real photo from one of our Christmas holidays as the background.  Snowy is a Stampendous stamp that you can mould to any shape you want, hence I made a melting look - because he forgot to put on the sunscreen!!!!  I stamped him on the printed photo, then again on white card.  I drew then paper pieced his board shorts (aren't they gorgeous?),  used a free stamp for the sunglasses (embossed on black card) and stuck nose with 3D foam.  I also drew his sunhat, but his friend, the tiny bird, is part of the Stampendous set.  His nose is coloured with Reno pens, stamped sentiment is Technique Tuesday.  White base card embossed with Sizzix 'Rays'.  Needless to say with all the fine sunny weather it ended up being a very short holiday for Snowy.
