I made a Christmas card using a Bonhomme De Neige Cling Stamp and Distress Oxide Inks for the background. Unfortunately this gogeous stamp set is currently unavailable but hopefully it will be back in stock soon xx 


I blended Spiced Marmalade, Dusty Concord and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Inks over Ranger Watercolor Paper and, spritzed with water and splattered with Dylusions London Blue and Polished Jade Inks 

I used Archival Black to stamp the lights and village and coloured with Polychromo Pencils.  I stamped coloured and fussy cut the snowman and made him a little banner to hold in his branches ;-)



and I finished the inside
