Happy Snowman

Even though we’ve had a couple 60+ degrees days, technically it is still winter, and this adorable snowman melts my heart!

This winter stamp is from the Sheena Douglass A Little Bit Sketchy line and is called Happy Snowman. I’ve colored it up using Spectrum Noir ColourBlend pencils. The sky was created using Spectrum Aqua watercolor markers. For a little extra dimension, I added some snow texture along the bottom edge.
