Snow Much Fun.....

Hello everyone: Even though we are having temps in the 70s. for this weekend, I made this card with one of my favorite Snowman stamp sets, the retired SU "Snow Much Fun", super adorable little Snowmen and other images. This card is for the fun and fabulous Merry Monday #200 Multi Challenge Celebration and I used the sketch from Fab Friday #85, here is my card.


I stamped this cute images onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored them with SU markers and the aqua painter, easy and quick. I did a bit of sponging for the sky and stamped the sentiment from Power Poppy Merry Littles using my MISTI to place it on the Snowman's hand.
Here is a picture of the finished inside.


Both the sentiment and the little tree are from the same Power Poppy set, I stamped them inking them up with SU markers.
Here are the banners that inspired my card.

Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
