Let It Snow! -- CIP Style

Happy Tuesday, CIP friends.  Julie posting today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  I have a small home décor piece to share with you.
It started as a piece of 2x4 wood.  I had a friend cut a bunch of 2x4 scraps for me.  This particular piece of wood measures 2x4x4. With a little paint, a couple stamps, and some fibers, this is what you can make:
I used acrylic paint on the base, mixing turquoise with a little black so it wasn't quite so stark.  Then, I stamped the snowman and sentiment onto the wood. I painted the snowman with Creative Inspiration Paint, using Winter Frost (one of the sale colors for December), Garnet (on sale in December at 33% off), Royal Purple and Orange. 
I wrapped some white fibers around the top of the wood, removed the legs of a snowflake brad, attached it to the fibers with a glue dot, and my home décor project is done!
I hope you like today's re-do of a wood block. For details on the project, please visit my blog. These paints are so versatile, you can make almost anything you can imagine.
