QKR - Pointillism Snowman Couple



Isn't this snowman couple adorable? My favorite seasons are fall and winter, and not just because the weather is cooler. I have some wonderful memories of making snowmen and snowangels as a kid, and stamps like this bring those memories back. Since I live in Texas, it's rather hard to make snowmen here. LOL

These images are from QKR Stampede, and I colored the snow couple with copic markers in some frosty blue colors. The background is created using the Pointillism technique from the Technique Junkies newsletter (December 2006 issue). There are lots of snowmen in the QKR Stampede store, and I'm looking forward to using more of them. Are you ready for Christmas yet??

Super cute, Holly! I love all the cool blues of the winter season. Winter, though, is not one of my favorite seasons . . . I'm "done" with the snow after a week!
