Hi, welcome back to day three of sneak peeks!!  I love this set called Cold Noses by Cheryl Grant!!  It really shows how much fun winter can be!!  I chose to go simple with this card since the stamp was sweet and cute all on its own!  I made the hills using Distress Inks and a template I created and then just sponged on the ink.  The color I used was Stormy Sky.  I also masked off the moon to keep it white.  This was all done on watercolor paper by Tim Holtz.  I then splattered on some white to add a few stars in the sky.  The sentiment was embossed with black ink and black embossing powder onto vellum.  I added a snowflake button and twine to finish it off!  I really love the moon peeking out from behind the little guy!  Thanks for much for stopping by and enjoy the hop!
