Merry Monday #103 - Snowman Take Two

Hello friends.  Just a quick post this afternoon, but I like snowmen too much to just make one card for this weeks challenge, so here's another card:


This was one of my very first stamp sets from SU! ("We Woosh You") back in 1999, and in fact I made my first Christmas card with this set...definitely an oldie but a goodie! :0)  After stamping the snowman, I did some masking so I could line up the pine trees behind him.  I embossed the trees with white embossing powder, and then watercolored them with my Aqua Painter and Old Olive ink.  I also watercolored the sky with Bashful Blue.  The snowman I colored with my Copics.  I glittered the bottom half of the card for my snow, and then finished with the layered and embossed sentiment over the snow.  Also added a button for a little more whimsy.  A fun card that brought back lots of happy memories! :0)  Not a lot of time, but you can still join in the fun over at the Merry Monday site right here .



Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful rest of your weekend!! :0)
