Snowman with Holly

This image is the digital coloured version of an image from Beccy's Place called 'Snowman with Holly'. I coloured over the scarf and one of the buttons with markers as I wanted a slightly different colour. This is a great image and a very easy card to make. I'm into easy  as I am still in catch up mode trying to enter the week long challenges over a Bugaboo. This one is for Sunday and the challenge is a sketch challenge: see here for all the details!

  •  I created the background with Stampin Up's Blue Bayou ink and a small sponge.
  • Using a home made template I inked the snow hills in with the sponge
