I used the adorable So Merry Stamp Set from Paperie Ink!

so cute, I know!
I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Pond Die Set to create a frozen lake for these guys to skate on!
I used Distress Oxide Inks in Peacock Feathers and Salvaged Patina to add color, and then splattered ink and water on top!
for the sky, I used Abandoned Coral and Dried Marigold! then used those tiny little snowflakes and stamped them in the same colors for something a little different!

I also used the Puffy Cloud Borders from Lawn Fawn to add the mounds of snow on the base of the card!

all of the images were watercolored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and then fussy cut them out!
