It's my pleasure to introduce Snowman Pinup from SSD.  Isn't she just gorgeous!  There are five new releases.  Each of my Sassy Sisters has a different new image to show you.  Our challenge for this release is Vintage or Shabby Chic.  This is a difficult challenge for me.  We were given a definition but I still struggle with this one.  I hope I have done it well.

I have colored her with Copic and Whisper Strokes markers and a white gel pen.  I added some Stickles and Glossy Accents to give her that sparkle and shine look. Then I added some Liquid Applique to give her boots the furry look.  The sketch I chose comes from Christmas Challenges with Sketches.  You will have to go over to their site to see the sketch.  It also has a twist to add stitching real or faux.  Mine are faux stitches.  

Each of the design papers come from Bearly Mine and then used my distressing tool to add the vintage look.  The others are Bazzill and my box of scraps.  For the embellishing I used pearls from Queen & Co., die cuts from Spellbinders and the poinsettias I received in a candy win from non other that my Sassy Sister Kim Kelley.  

Please head over to Sassy Studio Designs and see all the other beautiful creations that my Sassy Sisters have created for your inspiration then get out your stuff and create something of your own to enter our challenge.  

Here are the challenges I have entered into:

Sparkles #38 - Christmas is coming
Natalie and Amy - Color me happy
Avadares #5 - Christmas
Desert Islands #42 - Use at least 3 (I used 1, 2, 6, 8, 9 & 10)
