Watercolored Frosty Friends


Isn't this the sweetest stamp? There's just something super cute and adorable about those snow men. They've got cute little hats, scarves and what about the birds? For this reason, I decided to do a class using this stamp. Best of all, your class fee includes the stamp :) It's a watercoloring technique class. Check out the first card that I've designed for the class on November 24th:


My inspiration for this card came from this week's Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. We had a fantastic, simple sketch to work with and other than the greeting, I stayed pretty true to the sketch. 

Tips & Tricks:
*How awesome is the Snow Festival Designer Series Paper? So many gorgeous patterns all stitched together!
*To change up the look of your favorite punches, use a smaller sentiment and only half (or less) of the punch! That's what I did here with the Designer Label Punch.
*When watercoloring, it's much easier to blend your colors when using our Watercolor Paper. It's 140 lbs cold-pressed high quality watercolor paper.


I'm glad I'm back in the blogging world and see I have a few more followers! Welcome! But I'm still going to keep my posts short & sweet. Hope you've enjoyed this card. 'Til next time, keep letting stamps bring our your creativity!
