I had this card idea in my head yesterday and it turned out that an ATC was just the way to start it off!
I came up with this:
You'll have to forgive the smudging around the image. It was late and I took it at my workspace with my iPhone before attaching it to the card. I can't SHOW you the completed card, because it's a SUDSOL exclusive. If you're a demonstrator...you'll have to join SUDSOL to see it. It's REALLY easy to do! Just click on the link to the left of my blog posts.
I started off with a piece of Whisper White Cardstock. I stamped my little snowman in Staz-ON ink and watercoloured him. Now, I don't normally watercolour on Whisper White, but because I wasn't doing a LOT of colouring, it didn't turn out too bad. If I'd been doing a lot of blending, like in this card, I would have stamped on Watercolour Paper because otherwise, I would have ended up with a whole bunch of little white "pills" from the paper peeling due to the excess water.
I coloured his hat and mitts using the Real Red Watercolour Wonder Crayon, despite the fact that DH pointed out that snowman hats are usually black. Too bad for him! Red matched the theme for the rest of my card!
