Frosty Water Color

A snowy day inspires a frosty card! I used an old Flourishes stamp set Warm Winter Wishes designed by Marcella Hawley to create this.  I stamped the snowman on watercolor paper with a gray ink from Memento and water colored with a water brush using DOI Broken China, Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass, Walnut Stain, and Fossilized Amber.  Used black marker for eyes and mouth. Trimmed the image with a Spellbinders die and attached to a mat of Blue CS and a card base of White CS. 
Challenges:
CAS Watercolour: January Challenge Cool Colors
Addicted to CAS: #176 Code Word Frosty
Happy Little Stampers: January Watercolour Challenge Anything Goes + optional: Die Cuts
Retro Rubber Challenge: #126 Winter is here.  Flourishes stamp over 7 or more years. 
Cut It Up: Challenge 191 Snow Much Fun.  Used a Spellbinder Die.
Stamping Sensations: January Challenge Favorite Stamps.  This is a long favorite stamp of mine. Have used it so often and also now have it in the digital version. This may the first time I have used it with water coloring. 


Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa

What a delightful scene and I love the snowman image. Your water coloring is perfect too. I wish I could capture the art of doing it so well like you did.
