It’s beginning to look a LOT like Christmas …

Seriously!  This is probably my fifth or sixth Christmas card already this month … I’m way ahead of my usual schedule.     Now, if I can only get them mailed on time.   🙂

I found this cute little snowman from my LSS, it’s by Northwoods Rubber Stamps.   He has no name!!    hmmm …  I suppose Frosty isn’t very original.

I know we’re told NOT to do this, but I stamped this image on watercolor paper and colored him with my Copics!  They say it absorbs too much of the Copic ink, but I really wanted some texture since the  image has so much white space.   It worked okay, since I was then able to do the background with my Koi water brush and Distress inks broken china and faded jeans.    Of course, I added some Stickles around Frosty in Stardust … on the berries of the holly in Fired Brick and on his chain in Silver.   The dove, star and heart were cut out and attached with pop-it dots.   The paper is from the Basic Grey eskimo kisses 6×6 pad.

TGIF!!   I’m soooooooo happy it’s Friday.  Hope you have plans for a great weekend!

If you are interested, I have a new Tilda card up on MyMagnolia blog ~ Apple Pie Tilda!
