My Christmas Card to All of You

I made a fun card with the new Mario Rossi Jr.'s gorgeous stamps, Christmas Blueprint from Tim Holtz.
This Snowman is just so stinkin' cute. I didn't think it would be so much fun!
This is on watercolor paper and stamped with Black Soot Distress Ink. Then it's embossed with Super-Fine Detail Clear Embossing Powder.

The background had water laid down around the snowman and Prussian Blue watercolor paint was added in layers.
Before it dries completely, you have to add regular Table Salt to create the little blue circles that dry in the paint. It's tricky, but can be done. Adding it at just the right time makes it happen.
I added many, many different colors of Markers...Distress and Tombow to the Snowman and background.
JOY was written on a Jewelry Tag and a bit of  Tea Dye Distress Ink added to the edges.
A White Pen was used to put a few drops of snow over the blue.
Christmas Red dots of Ice Stickles make the Holly stand out on the Hat, and a Candy Cane from Petaloo adds a bit of whimsy.
Layer it onto a layer of black and red cardstock, and then onto a tan card.
That's it for today, hope you enjoy! And a wonderful Holiday Season to All my friends of every religion.

    What a gorgeous little masterpiece! You've really brought him to life Linda. And I love your salt technique, I like to do it when I paint ocean scenes. It is very effective on your card. Gotta love that little snowman! Merry Christmas to you and your family Linda!!
