...with mittens! :)

How cute is this little snowman?  He's one of the many stamps in the Paper Smooches {FREEZY FELLAS} set, which also comes with the mittens and heart stamps.  I stamped the mittens and heart with clear VersaMark ink onto turquoise cardstock to get the watermark effect.  I heat embossed the snowman image with white embossing powder.  The sentiment is from the Paper Smooches {GOOD GAB} stamp set.

I followed this week's Designer Draft sketch from the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge blog:

Hello!  I've got another quick card share today, this time featuring {Wild Sprouts - CHELSEA}, an older, retired stamp from The Greeting Farm.  I made it for the current TGF {FARM FRESH FRIDAY} challenge "Tag, You're It!"

I'm still getting the hang of the no-line coloring technique, but I think she turned out pretty cute. :)  I stamped her onto watercolor paper with a light peach ink and colored her with Distress Ink markers, water, and a paintbrush.

The rest of the card supplies can be found at the end of this post.
She's totally rockin' it!

I'm having so much fun water coloring with my Distress Ink markers and this MFT "Precious Little Lamb - Fill My Heart With Joy" stamp was crying out for me to color her up:


She's adorable!  And she could easily be turned into a he, just by changing the outfit details.  I love versatile stamps like this.  I stamped her onto watercolor paper and colored her with Distress Ink markers, a paintbrush, and water.  I added a few highlights with a white ink gel pen to finish her off.

This fantastic sketch is from the current MFT Sketch Challenge. I'll be using if often, I'm sure. I really love how it turned out!

P.S. Since I'm back to a regular cardmaking schedule, I finally renewed my InLinkz subscription so I'll be able to list all of my card supplies again. Yay!

I've got a quick clean + simple card to share with you today:

I used one of the cute snowmen from Paper Smooches' {FREEZY FELLAS} stamp set for this tag.  I stamped him onto watercolor paper and heat embossed him with white embossing ink.  I then used my Distress Ink markers, water, and a paintbrush to lightly color him in.

That stamp set has a bunch of small extras as well, which is where I got the teeny, tiny Christmas light bulb... so cute!  I stamped it multiple times to look like a long string of lights and water colored them to look as if they were glowing. :)   The sentiment is from the {FIRST AID KIT} set, also by Paper Smooches.  It's been heat embossed as well.

I'm adding this card to the following challenges:

{PAPERTAKE WEEKLY} - Favorite/Anything Goes
{SIMON SAYS STAMP} - Anything Goes

Hope everyone has a great week!  Thanks for visiting.
