Snowman in the Heat

It's been SO hot here in the Northeast for a while now.
We are finally getting some much needed rain,
and hopefully some relief from all that heat!

(Do I sound old saying that we need rain??) 

It's been so long since I've just made some
cards for the fun of it, so tonight I went looking
for some challenges to do.  I found the 

challenge in my Google Reader and
decided to play along!

 this is what I came up with~

I figured I'd get out a winter set and play around a bit.

Thanks so much for looking!

Card info:
Stamps: Snowfolks from Paper and Such
Paper: black, white, BG Marrakech
Ink: Memento and Versafine black
Misc:  Nesties, Copics C1, B00, B04, B05

Here is my card using this set!

I tried a technique on this that I learned at my Copic
Certification class.  I colored the image with E41, then
took a piece of muslin material and soaked it up good with
my Copic Blender solution, then layed it over top my image
and pressed down.  It's a bit hard to see in the picture, but
the material left an impression on the colored image!
You should definitely try it!!

Next stop on the blog hop is -
