If only he could wobble!

Looks like winter's coming... on this card at least!
The challenge from One Stop Cards and Crafts is Snow  can't say we're not politically correct!
The challenge has been set by Sharon, who hasn't been too well this week so do send her a big hug. It is sponsored by Robyn's Fetish and this is one of their images. It reminds me of when my son was small and we were living in the USA, he had some toys called Weebles and they wobbled but didn't fall down. I would love to make this image wobble and have played around a little but haven't come up with a practical solution as yet. If anyone can't think of a way of doing it I would love to hear it!
The background was made with my splodge Rollagraph wheel using the emboss resist technique, and I used SU Bashful blue ink over the top of the clear embossing.
Both the snowman (which I coloured with a mix of Promarkers and Copics) and the snowflakes are mounted on pop dots.
The sentiment is from Stampin' Up.
I belong to a Stampin' Up club and was lucky enough to win £45 worth of stamps and punches from Victoria my Stampin' Up demonstrator, I've been drooling over the catalogue and can't wait to choose my gift.. how cool is that!!! If you need any Stampin' Up products, (and who doesn't) I'm sure she'd be delighted to hear from you!

  1. He's a gorgeous snowman (sorry I am not PC) Chrissie. Could you mount him on a tiny wire spring to make him wobble, he certainly wouldn't fall down :o)
