Merry & Bright

Hi, everyone!
Yesterday was a very hot day!
BUT, I rapidly shifted to the wintry design. Is the reason this is the one after I made autumnal card last time? No, no. Haha.
To tell the truth, there's a fantastic challenge 'Winter Wonderland' at Caardvarks sponsored by Hero Arts.

So I made a card for Caardvarks 'Winter Wonderland' challenge.
This is the card, 'Merry & Bright'.

I didn't have the new snowman stamp yet, so this is one of my favorite of last year's.
And this card is also to take on HA Shari's Tuesday sketch. So I'm gonna submit this to Hero Arts.
And one more taking on ..., oh my!
I made this background to use the 'pigment ink resist' technique of Thinking Inking class part 1 of week 9 at 2Peas. I was so interested in this method while watching the video. I haven't ever known pigment inks can use for resisting. So I tried.

This is a closeup photo.

I use VersaCraft white pigment ink with distress inks for resist. The coloring for the big snowman is Liquid Pearls with distress inks and water, and Snow Cap acrylic paint dabber for the sentiment.

stamp used:
HA Design Blocks Big Holiday Words / S5076
HA Clear Design Let It Snow / CL233
Lizzie Anne Designs stamp

other supplies:
Bazzill Basics & American Crafts CS
Tsukineko StazOn / Jet Black, Timber Brown
Ranger Distress Ink / Antique Linen, Broken China, Weathered Wood
Ranger Liquid Pearl / Gold, Baby Blue, Ruby Red
Ranger Stickles / Flosted lace, Acrylic Dabber / Snow Cap
HA Shadow Ink / Soft Pool
