Red, White & Blue Snowmen

I love snowman cards.  They can be cute, funny or sometimes sentimental.  I think they always remind us of our childhood.  At  least for those of us who grew up where the climate was snowy.  There was nothing better than a snow day as a kid – no school and a whole day to play in the snow!  But, I digress . . .

Another thing I love is a cool technique on a card.  The snowmen were embossed in black ink and clear powder on crumb cake card stock.   Then Karen used an old blender pen to bleach them and then sponge daubers and classic ink to shade.  Have you ever tried that?
