Frosty Friends!

I've got a cutie card for you today. This conglomeration of snowmen look like they are having fun aren't they? This is one of those "solo" stamps that is available in the Holiday Catalog. Don't wait too long as it will be disappearing soon when the catalog ends on January 2nd. Our new Spring Catalog will be here soon!

I stamped this image using StazOn Jet Black Ink. Why StazOn rather than the Basic Black Ink? When watercoloring, you want an ink that will not run or smudge when wetting with a Blender Pen:

I used my ink pads and dabbed a little bit of color on a Blender Pen and started playing. How do you like the edging around my Apothecary Accents Die shape?

The layer of Cherry Cobbler you see in the background is from the C'oredinations Paper, embossed with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Folder. I then used a Sanding Bock to sand the embossing:

Before I glued my stamped image layer to the front of my card, I flipped it over and added Sticky Strip to the bottom edge and then gathered some Cherry Cobbler Tulle by pressing in place:
