Thursday Sketch # 8 Wishing you Cheer

Here is my 8th Thursday sketch. I ended up liking this sketch more than I thought I would.
I stamped the images on watercolor paper so that when I colored them with markers the lines wouldn't show. After coloring them, I went over them with a aqua painter and dabbed off some of the ink with a paper towel in places to lighten it a bit, but I think all I did was make the trees look blotchyrolleyes, lol.
I shaded the side of the snowman and the snow with the Bashful Blue watercolor crayon, but I'm not sure if that shows up in the picture. -Stamps-Wishing you Cheer, Many Merry Messages
-Paper-Dashing DSP (I am loving this papermrgreen), Watercolor paper and River Rock, Real Red, and Old Olive Cardstock
-Ink-River Rock, Black stazon, Real Red
-Accessories-Pewter hodgepodge hardware, Aqua painter, Bashful Blue watercolor crayon, Markers:Real Red, Old Olive, Summer Sun.
