Marshmallow World?

hmmm...are you wondering what my title is all about. Well, our very talented and creative DT member Pryn at The Outlawz came up with this challenge...

"Oh, it's a Marshmallow World in the winter....when the snow comes to cover the ground"...sing along with us if you know the words :) We are caroling here at CAS to get into the spirit of the season. This week's challenge requires you to create a CAS project with a white card base (this will be our snow) AND pop dots to raise an element (these are our marshmallows). Any theme you want :)
Break out the hot chocolate and let the creativity fly...oh...and don't forget the marshmallows ;)

I wasn't exactly sure where to go with this challenge, because really, you could make anything. I decided to stray from Christmas cards for a bit and used my Happy Trails stamp set which has gotten a lot less attention than it deserves! I started by die cutting the clouds (Lil' Inker) and the birds that coordinate with the Happy Trails stamp set. Next, I stamped the bird image in Pool Party and then rolled it in Island Indigo (Rock & Roll technique). I arranged the clouds and birds then stamped the trails & sentiment. My birds acted as the marshmallows and were popped up on dimesionals.

Join us in this fun challenge, I'd love to see how you interpret it!!!

Stamps: Happy Trails
Ink: Pool Party, Island Indigo
Paper: Whisper White
Accessories: Clouds Die, Happy Trails Die
