Snowman x 2

Hi everyone.  Today I'm sharing two cards using one stamp set.

I used a new-to-me (NBUS) set from My Favorite Things called Present Time (with matching dies).  Both cards are all done with the same products ... the sky is sponged with Salvaged Patina and Mermaid Lagoon distress ink.  The snowhills are torn with glitter added to the torn edge for some sparkle.  The sweet snowmen and trees are watercoloured using distress re-inkers (candied apple, aged mahogany, twisted citron, mowed lawn) and then splattered with white acrylic paint for the falling snow.  The card above uses a sentiment from the same stamp set.

Sending the above card to NBUS Challenge #36.

The card below uses a sweet sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Merry Messages stamp set.
Sending the second card (above) to the Merry Little Christmas Challenge #42.

... and also sending the second card to Rudolph Day's March Challenge.

Oh, these are so cute Loll and I love them both equally. The colours are so bright and love the way the snowman on the second is staring sadly into the empty stocking, and the sentiments on both look great in red. x

Looks to me like there just might be one teensy gift still left in that stocking! I think your snowman should shake it out of there!!!

Thanks for taking part in the Rudolph Days Challenge.
