The Snowmen Mobilize

Once the snowflake army had arisen, some of them merged together to create even more monstrous soldiers - snowmen warriors. I was worried how these newly formed snowmen were going to fit on the sleds and still leave room for the elves we were rescuing, due to their massive breadth. They took care of that issue themselves though, creating motorized vehicles to ride in. Their high intelligence level and ability to create incredibly complex machines was beginning to worry me.
I started this card by stamping the “Snow Mobile” image by Whipper Snapper Designs onto watercolour paper and colouring him with Distress Markers and the Hydra Brush. This earned me +392 exp points in wielding the Distress Markers, allowing me to level up that skill. I stamped the tag from the Tim Holtz “Odds and Ends” set and inked and distressed the edges. I used a cheapo Recollections brand set to stamp the snowflakes and snowmen in the background.
I used that same set to stamp more snowflakes on the inside and added the sentiment from the Tim Holtz “Christmas Memories” set.
I stamped the envelope to match the background paper on the card.

I shall be mobilizing this card into the following challenges:
Pixie Dust Studio Challenge: Nontraditional Colors Christmas Creation
Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Merry Christmas
Card Crafter’s Circle Challenge #54: It’s Christmas
Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge #51: December Celebrations
Paper Playtime Challenge #91: Winter Fun
CHNC Challenge #104: Anything Goes for Christmas
Penny’s Paper-Crafty Challenge #107: Merry Christmas
Creative Craft Challenges2: Non-Traditional Christmas
Chocolate Coffee and Cards Challenge #29: Snowmen
Crafts and Me Challenges: Winter Wonderland

Hopefully we can get through the elf rescue mission tonight without any of these snowmen going rogue. I fear we will have to destroy them after the mission has been completed, lest they form together and rampage.
