Snowman’s Cabin

This was created for Sketch Challenge 214 & my ongoing Christmas Card Challenge. Wednesdays are really busy for me with work and kid's activities so I normally stay up late and do the sketch challenge before bed (2 AM!) and post it in the morning (6AM). I was feeling really tired tonight so I set my alarm to get up and do the sketch challenge in the middle of the night! Am I a sick-o or what!?!?

I'm glad to report that the drywall is all hung in my basement stamping space and it is MUCH warmer. Thanks DH! I still need to "move in" completely as I'm kinda living out of boxes.

Just my usual "stuff" here:

Cut then Ink technique - to get my layers to line up.

How I Color

I need to learn how to photograph glitter - there is glitter pen on the snowman's swirls and Angel Wingz Shimmerz on the snowy hills and paths.

Stamps: Whiff of Joy Herb with Teacup (Thank you SammySue1975!), H & M Dad’s Outdoors, Rubbernecker Kittie Kits Cause a Scene The Moose Is Loose #2, Itty Bitty Backgrounds
Paper: Whisper White, Blue Bayou
Ink: Old Olive, Soft Sky, Baja Breeze, Whisper White
Accessories: Copics, Prismacolor pencils and Goo Gone, Angel Wingz Shimmerz (on snowy hills), Glitter pen (on snowman’s swirls)
