Warm & Cozy {Purple Onion Designs}

I am off to my usual slow January start but I promise things will pick up soon. I appreciate my readers hanging in there with me. 

After stamping the Purple Onion Designs Rory & Noelle (Winter Mouse and Squirrel) image onto Copic friendly cardstock, I colored with Copic markers then fussy cut out. For the background I used a die from the Picket Fence Studios Slim Line Die Cutting System to create the cut out. To fill the cut out I blended blueberry sky ink, then stamped the Dusting of Snow image twice using Versamark ink so I could white heat emboss. I added more snow by splattering watered down white acrylic paint on the background and also on the animal image. The sentiment from the Essential Holiday Greetings set was stamped directly onto the panel using cherry kisses ink. The image was attached using foam dimensionals. This is my first Christmas card for the year and my plan is to make these throughout the year.
