Snowman Selfie

My snow man seems to be in a winter storm with the texture paste and the infusion powders, the weather looks looks pretty gloomy behind him.
I die cut the frame using a Simon Says Stamp Merry Christmas frame and inlaid some of the sentiment in black so it would stand out.

The texture paste adds a lot of dimension and accentuates the powdered inks as they pool around the edges,

I'm entering this for the following Challenges
