Paper Smooches Picture Challenge

This week's challenge at Paper Smooches was a picture challenge, and the picture was adorable. I had to stop myself from trying to recreate the image in the photo on my own hand, because that was super clever. 
Super clever, right?

So I decided to go a little mirror image design, because I wanted that image of two lovestruck "someones" gazing at each other.  I decided to use the snowman from the Warm Hearts set.  

There is only one snowman in the set, so to create the look of them gazing at each other, I used a piece of acetate and stamped using Stazon on both sides - one on one side, and then flipped once dry to get the second one.  I used scraps of paper to color the hearts and the noses.  It's glued right onto the acetate using a clear drying glue.  I then cut a frame from my blue pattern paper so the white card base would show through, and all the glue is under the patter paper. 

A neat technique if you ever want a mirror image!
