Watercoloured Snowman

Good afternoon

Back today to share another card I made last month whilst staying with Sarah up north.  This snowman stamp was an absolute bargain from The Works.  It was £1...and also buy one get one free!  So he, along with another little Christmas stamp obviously fell straight into my basket!

I stamped the image on watercolour cardstock in VersaMark before heat embossing in white.  I then watercoloured him using my Derwent Inktense pencils.  I used a stitched rectangle die to cut him out, and mounted it on a larger rectangle cut from the same stack.  Before mounting I added some score lines to my card base to add a detailed frame, then adhered the panels with a sentiment flag underneath.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: DoCrafts - Mini Clear Stamp: Christmas Assortment; Happy Little Stampers - Mixed Christmas Sentiments
  • Ink: VersaMark
  • Embossing Powder: Wow - Opaque Bright White
  • Dies: MFT Die-namics - Stitched Rectangle Stax; Stitched Sentiment Strips 
  • Coloured with Derwent Inktense pencils
