Baby it's cold outside


I was itching to use my alcohol inks again and my new MFT set was begging for some more use! The two together worked great! Some special details on this card using the alcohol inks. I colored the safety pin to match my background and dabbed a bit on my snowflake tag as well. I used my copics to color my image and also the white ribbon. I first colored the ribbon green, then I just touched the edge of the ribbon with my turquoise marker and let it bleed. The pebbles I colored with my markers too.

This stamp set will be released on December 5th at My Favorite Things. You will want to check out this set as well as two others that I will give sneak peeks over the next few days....how fun!

Here is a close up of this adorable image. I stamped the image on my glossy in white first then paper pieced my image overtop. Liquid applique worked really well for my snow mound. I popped up the hat and outlined it with a glaze pen.
This is a set that can have many different looks. I used to think that alcohol inks only created a "grunge" look, but here they can be quite cute!

Happy Stamping!

These are really bold colors together, but I like them! I also really like your dyed ribbon.
