Rudolph Days

I can't believe how quickly the last month has flown by and it's the 25th of the month again. Time to play along over on Scrappymo's Rudolph Days challenge again. I was lucky enough to win the die from last month's challenge, a lovely holly die which I shall look forward to using in the future. This month I have used this gorgeous snowman from Stampendous. I stamped in versamark onto watercolour card stock and then embossed with Wow black sparkle embossing powder. Next I coloured using Aqua pro markers and a water brush. Finally I went around the edges with stormy sky distress ink before mounting onto a 6x6 card base.



 Another four cards to add to my growing collection for Christmas 2016.


Happy Easter to everyone.
Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Lovely batch of cards, I can never bring myself to do that! But at least you get a good start on your cards that way and they all look terrific in the different colourways.

Such a delightful Snowy, and clever you to have 4 cards to add to your stash. I wish I were that productive! Congratulations on your big win, and Rudy Day certainly helps with the stash come December. I didn't see 'me' in your followers list, so signed in to Google, and I am a follower! TFS & have a wonderful upcoming week.

I love snowmen and I have to admit this image is wonderful -- seeing it four times on a card makes it a winner in my book!
