Happy Winter and Some Snowman Cheer!

I don't feel like this is starting out as a happy winter, too much snow already for me! And talk about cold!!!!! Gimme a break, it's only the middle of December! Anyway, after laundry and before getting on to another batch of cookies, I made this card for the OWH Stars and Stamps sketch challenge. I used Clear Dollar Stamps digital Snowman Cheer. I used my Copic markers on him, creating a plaid effect with the colorless blender. I wanted to used different colors from the usual blues I'm drawn to when I work with snowmen, and this DSP said pick me...so I did! It's a SU paper called Merry Moments, and colors include Chocolate chip, Old olive, and Ruby red.

Stay warm and have a wonderful day! Be sure and be back tomorrow for the December release of Clear Dollar Stamps new digital stamps!!!!! You're gonna love 'em!

Beautiful card! It is interesting you would mention using the usual blue with snowmen because I was fighting that same battle earlier today! I really like how these colors came out and I had forgotten about creating plaid with colorless Copics. Thanks for reminding me. Blessings, Louise
