Umbrella Man does Xmas ! (for Sunday Stampers)

I didn't think he had it in him but it goes to show you can make almost anything christmassy!
I was in denial about christmas actually being that close untill I read Hels' blog post today, so I thought I'd better start coming to terms with it!
Umbrella Man is not the first thing  that comes to mind when thinking of a christmas theme but I thought he deserved a go.

I sprayed the tag with a home made mix of pale blue spray then tore a few pieces of white card to layer on the bottom to make it look like snow drifts....don't think it's very clear on the photo, then stamped the trees from Tim Holtz' mini holidays set then lightly over the sky with the snowflakes from the same set.Umbrella man has been painted black then dry brushed with white. When I'd stuck the snow drifts and him down I added some Diamond Stickles to the trees and his back.
The drifts and the umberella have been covered with Golden Glass Bead Gel and the words have been punched into foil tape on heavy cardstock.

 TTFN..... going to think about Christmas!!
