Yup, here I am in Arizona to escape winter and what stamp & die set do I buy at the Stamp Show last weekend?!? Being in a warm place for the winter doesn't diminish how much I love snowmen stamps so this little guy hopped into my basket and came home with me.
Stamped the image on watercolour paper in my TH Stamp Platform, coloured him with distress inks and an aqua-painter. After I coloured the image, I restamped the image in my platform to darken the lines. I wanted to make a snowy background but didn't have a lot of choices for supplies. I attempted to create a snowy effect by splattering some Ranger Distress Picket Fence ink with a wet toothbrush. Not quite the look I was going for but I'll just claim it as a 'limited supplies challenge" and call it good.
Loved the ornaments on the inspiration site. May have to do a few more cards. Thanks for stopping by.

Great find at the stamp show (I love snowmen)! I like all the fun details on this stamp. Pretty coloring and Mr. Snowy really pops against the deep blue background. Wish I was in AZ for the winter, snowing here in Michigan.

What an adorable snowman!!! So I have to tell you that I am most inspired to get my snowmen out when it's hot and sunny! It helps cool me off! Your snowman is charming and I think your snow looks great!
