Christmas Wrapping a little early

I'm entering this gift bag into the Dazzling Diva #43 christmas challenge and the ABC Christmas Challenge blog that I just found.  I love making Bag A Lopes they are so easy and quick! ( Hope that this entry is okay since it isn't a card)

For my Focal point I started with a piece of blue metal (?name of color??)  Embossed the Scene with Silver powder.  In the ground area I added Viva Moss Green then took an Acrylic paint Dabber (pearl) I had to sponge the look of fallen snow.  Not sure you can see in the picture but I also added Viva light blue to the sky area before using the dabber. Colored the snowman with copics and added more of the pearl dabber to him.  I colored over the trees with a copic also.

The snowflakes on the bag were made with glossy white and wax paper.  If you put wax paper under your image when die cutting the image will come off the die so easily!!  I  used the pearl dabber to add a shine to the wax paper and added them and the glossy card stock flakes to the bag randomly. *** One other note if  you use a lot of die cuts that are detailed you really should invest in a Spellbinders Tool 'n One.  It is a WONDERFUL tool and will save you time and the headache of trying to get all the little pieces out of your cut image!!!  ****
     The frame around my focal point is white card  stock, I added Silver Viva around the edge to color it.  I could have used silver paper but didn't have any left so made my own.  :0)

I  now have one more wrapping done for a christmas gift.  Thanks to the Dazzling challenge for giving me the idea and thank you for stopping by to see my vision!!
