WMS Sneak Peek Day 2 - Frosty in the Pines

Welcome to day 2 of the Waltzingmouse September Release Sneak Peeks!  Today the Design Team is working with a wonderful snowman set called Frosty in the Pines.
I paper pieced the hat, scarf and cardinal on Frosty, coloring in his nose and the birds beak with a Copic - and coloring over his button eyes, mouth and buttons with a Glaze Pen - so they're shiny!  I used the large and middle size trees from the set on  my background - as well as 3 snowflakes - plus a scattering of sequins!  I fussy cut Frosty  and popped him up over the forest with foam dots.
You'll find lots of lovely projects using Frosty in the Pines at the following DT links!

I love this Julia. Frosty looks so dapper against the dark blue background and the way your trees look like they are in shadow from the night. Great technique!
