A Delightful Snowman...


Hi there, just a super quick post today J  I'm still in need of Christmas Cards for our friends and family and I got uber inspired by the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.



I even decided to watercolor using Tim Holtz Distress Inks- they are so nice to work with. Anyways, I just kept it super clean and simple. I started off by cutting out the main panel using a Tim Holtz die and my Big Shot. Then I stamped the most delightful snowman from Stampin Up using Black Stazon and added a bit of color with my Aqua Painter and inks. Then I just layered him up and added the snowflake (also a die cut), added a bit of ribbon to the button and stuck them together using sticky dots.

Hope you like it and wish you a wonderful Holiday Season,


Jessie
