Snow globes

This week at CRAFT Challenges, Challenge 78 is to create a Christmas present.

Our lovely sponsor Debbie at The Crafty Pad is offering the following polymer stamp as a prize:

In keeping with the theme, I used a digital version of the stamp on my project. I printed the image onto pale blue cardstock, coloured it with watercolour pencils and KindyGlitz:

and I used it to decorate this:

I bought the snow globe from my local Coles supermarket (in the aisle that has DVD-Rs and photo frames).  It's got a magnet on the back, and you can change the picture that slots in at the back.  I was going to put it aside to pop into Jasmine's Christmas stocking, but I wasn't sneaky enough and I got sprung taking the photograph!!

I'm also submitting my project at:
