CHF Frosty Friends

Oooooh, how I love this stamp! So adorable...there's just something about an outdoor scene of animals that I love. It's from Cornish Heritage Farms, part of their Friendly Kritters collection. So is the sentiment.

I used the colors in today's Color Challenge CC193 on SCS. The image is stamped in Versafine Black Onyx onto Kraft CS, and then watercolored with inkpads/reinders. After watercoloring, I used a white Prisma pencil to color in the snow and falling snowflakes. The sky was also done with a Prisma pencil. I added some AIG Dries Clear Adhesive to the snow and icicles on the hat and antlers, and then sprinkled on some of Taylor's Starfire Glitter. The picture doesn't capture just how sparkly this stuff is. I love it!

The inside of the card follows the same layout as the front of the card, which by the way is Taylor's Sketch TECC40. The sentiment on the inside is from Taylor's Season's Sweetings stamp set.
