Snowman Parade

Hi Everyone,
Back to winter at Dreaming and Creating. Today, I have a set of snowman projects. A Christmas card, a Winter card, and a tree ornament. All projects were made using Mark's Finest stamps. (Don't forget they will be the November sponsor over at Stamping Vacation.) Let's look at the Christmas card.
I colored the images with inks (applied with a wet brush) and markers. I filled in the hat, mittens, and scarf with glitter glues. The DP is from My Mind's Eye, Stampin' Up. CS: Green and rust - AC Cardstock

The second Snowman is Winter themed card with a funny sentiment. The Snowman was colored the same way as card #1. CS: Marina Blue - Stampin' Up. DP: K & Company. That cute sentiment is from Victorine Originals.

And, a detail shot so you can see the glitter.

The third project is a Tree ornament.
