I’m on a bit of a snowman/vintage style kick at the moment so I thought it would be a good idea to give the snowman colourint tutorial that Anna Wight shared last week. (you can find the post HERE)  I only have a cheap white craft ink pad but I gave it a shot and it’s not too bad (except the pad is a bit dried up…I’ve had it for almost 5 years).

My colours are a little unusual too…darker, more sombre Christmas tones but sometimes a change is nice…here’s how the card turned out:

I think I like it.  It’s certainly a different combo for me – kind of grey/cranberry/kraft…earthy but somewhat elegant.

The paper is Basic Grey and the stamp is a Recolllections stamp from Michael’s.  I’ve got lots of snowman stamps on the way so this will probably be the year of the snowman.  We shall see.
