Teamwork

Hi everyone.  I started my card with a NBUS stamp that I bought not long ago.  This is called Teamwork (by Anita Jerum from Colorado Craft).  I  just love this fun scene of everyone working together to get these snowmen made.  Adorable!

I stamped in black ink and heat embossed with clear before adding soft sponging for the sky and watercolouring the image with my Zig markers.  I used the same stamp set for the sentiment that is stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in red.  To finish, I used my white Posca pen to add stripes and dots details to the scarfs and hats and then splattered with diluted white acrylic paint for the falling snow.

Close-up ...

I'm sending this to April Rudolph Days Challenge - Anything Christmas Goes.  I try to play along each month to keep my stash building throughout the year.

And I'm also sending this to NBUS Challenge #37.  First time using this stamp set!

I love this fun snowman and friends and I love that you have kept the colouring simple with just four colours and the posca pen for the stripe and dot details on the scarves and finishing with the matching red sentiment and some acrylic paint for the falling snow...a super Christmas card Loll. x
