Snowman on Skis for CAS Christmas Reminder

Hello friends.

There's just over a week left to join in at CAS Christmas.

I had so much fun creating this guy!

Susan chose a fun challenge at CAS Christmas this month.

I put this stamp from Serendipity in my MISTI and inked him with markers,
using my water brush after each stamping.  I repeated inking and stamping
until I was happy with the results.

It was really fun watching him come to life bit by bit!

Serendipity is having  a blog hop and if you comment on all the hoppers
you're entered into a random drawing for a $20.00 gift certificate.
There's also lots of $1.00 stamps and a great deal on a grab bag at the 
Serendipity store.
Inspriation and bargains. What a deal!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

What an adorable snowman, Bonnie, beautiful card. xx

He is one cutie, I would definitely go skiing with him tomorrow since there's still ski on the slopes. Summer shorts and a T-shirt right now, but for me, I'll will absolutely take his scarf, mitts and hat.
Again, beautiful soft colours, loving your colour combo too. xx

I love this cute skiing snowman, Bonnie! Your fantastic watercoloring with the distress markers totally brings him to life. It's soft, pretty, and delicate. The Pool Party matting and the red & white bakers twine are perfect, matching the colors used for the snowman. Hideko xx

What a happy, cute as a button snowman. Your coloring technique keeps the look soft. Fun to look at as we head in to 90 degree NC summer weather(!!)

Sure did come to life and what a wonderful water colour effect. So so pretty and utterly adorable x

Nancy Stislow said...

You did an outstanding job with this technique, Bonnie. This is my newest and favorite on to do and never thought to use it on something besides scenic and flowers. Love the effect! His sweater and hat look so fuzzy and soft!

But fun! You also had a good time with staining watercolors and the end result is amazing.
