This is a verry rustic, distressed card! This snow guy is from another of my favorite decorative painting artists, Katrina Roncin's book Abundance of Blessings. I've had this book for a long time, and painted many a patterns from it. I love her primitive style and deep, antique colors. I traced and watercolored the image with a variety of Distress Inks, Adirondack reinkers, and of course, Tombow markers. I could not find an off-white pen or marker though, so I painted the snowflakes in the background with the old stand by, a paintbrush and acrylic paints. While the paint was still wet, I sprinkled glitter on it. I love the way this card came out. It kind of looks like a special memento that's been lovingly saved in Grandma's attic for years!
Hope you like!
