Pointillism for Christmas

Jane the Flower Girl has created a great look for these snowmen

Jane has used her Skating Snowmen simply stamped them and given them a vintage feel with her choice of colours. Jane has used the Woodware Scruffer to distress the edges and added some colour around the edge.
Of course Jane has added some Stickles to sparkle up the card, and the colouring is Pointillism which we featured last year.
Pointillism /ˈpɔɪntɨlɪzəm/ is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image. Georges Seurat and Paul Signac developed the technique in 1886, branching from Impressionism. The term “Pointillism” was first coined by art critics in the late 1880s to ridicule the works of these artists, and is now used without its earlier mocking connotation. The movement Seurat began with this technique is known as Neo-Impressionism. The Divisionists, too, used a similar technique of patterns to form images, though with larger cube-like brushstrokes.
I love this card from Jane the Flower Girl I think that it would be very relaxing to make a few of these in an evening.

If you can't find Woodware stamps in the US why not ask your local store about them they can find them all on the Woodware web-site.
 or  Woodware Stamps are available from Notions Marketing in the US check with them for your nearest stockist.
