Snow Hugs

So nice to be back stamping! For this card, I watercolored this image from the RRD Candy Kisses plate using Stampin' Up ink and an aquabrush. I generally follow the lines fairly loosely to really give that watercolor feel. To see more of my watercolored cards, check out my Simple Set Saturday post on the RRD blog.

I got the idea for using a snowman from a new-to-me challenge blog called Bah Humbug which has Snowmen as their challenge for this week.

I like using warm colors for winter projects. I think it makes it extra fun! I was so pleased to see that the Less is More Challenge blog had Red and Orange as their inspiration. I've already used these colors with another snowman I made last year - check here.

This year, I turned to my brand-new Candy Kisses plate for the sweet image and its companion plate, Snow Hugs, for the sentiment.
