Unconventional Christmas Colours - This months paperlane challenge

Good Morning, This months challenge at the paperlane Is
So the colours that are out of bounds are Red, Green, and Blue!!!
So for this  Challenge I thought I would make a cute little tissue box. With this been the season we tend to get sniffles a snuffles. I think this will look great on your desk and would make good little gift to cheer someone up whos got a snotty nose.
So my unconventional Christmas colours were, blacks, grey, with a hint of purple
I really enjoyed making this. I used the pocket sized packs of tissues, Made the little box for tissues to go into, using my score board. Used spellbinders die to cut out tissue window
Added the back board to tissue box ready to decorate.
Don't you just love this cute snowman stamp by Simply gorjuss.
I coloured him with copic markers then added glitter/glass. Its more like crushed glass than glitter. The name of it escapes me, but the sell it at thepaperlane 
Anyway I added this crushed glass to the head of the snowman and to parts of his body. Also to the snow drifts. The snow drifts were created by making a paper mask,  I ripped up post - it note paper
To give the ragged edge put it on image and used black on cut and dry foam to sponge on the drifts.

For the background I used the resist technique. After stamping the snowman I masking him off, Then used the snowflake stamp with versa embossing ink, added embossing powder, heat set it.
Then used black ink with the cut and dry foam over the stamped snowflakes,
to created the snowing night sky.
I used the beautiful black / grey coloured papers behind image. Cut to size layered it on white card.
Added silver stickles to the swirls on the paper. Added the ribbons. The Martha Stewart branch punch was used to add a little extra decoration. The sentiment I have used is from Craft stamper magazine. which you can buy from paperlane. I used the black crystal stones for snowman's eyes and around the card to add extra sparkle. Used the Tim holtz vintage market die to create the lettering.
Think that's about it. If I missed anything out and want to know how I did it. or what I used, just drop me a comment.
