Supporting the Alzheimer's Association

Carolyn King designed the Warm Winter Wishes stamp set for Gina K. Designs and is turning 100% of her proceeds over to the Alzheimer’s Association in honor of her grandmother. When I heard this, I just had to buy the set!

I’m posting this card as the very first one in my StampTV gallery, since I’m using the sketch from this week’s StampTV challenge (STVSC34). The adorable snowman was colored in with colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Gosh Vera, you coloring gets better and better! Love the shading achieved with the gamsol magic technique. Sweet card. The deckled edge Nestie die looks perfect with the snowman image.

    Very pretty. I don’t remember who I learned it from, I think it may have been Michelle Zindorf, but you can also just dip the pencils in the gamsol and use them that way without the blending stumps.
