Baby, It's Cold Outside

     BRRRRRR!!! You can feel the cold coming off of this card! A couple of weeks ago, I took a watercolor class - using my watercolor markers to color my stamped images. I threw my first snowman away. This is one is better, but I obviously could still use some more work on this. One thing I like about this technique is that there is lots of stamping. Most cards only require 2 or 3 stamps, but I stamped this snowman at least 7 times. 

     The stamp set I used is "Winter Cheer" by Gina K. I colored the image by coloring my stamp with watercolor markers and moving the color around with a paintbrush. The hat brim and ball are enhanced with clear Wink of Stella. It is distressed with Pumice Stone distress ink.
