Keeping Warm and Cozy

A simple card today. 

This cute little scene is a very old stamp from Amuse.  It so evokes the feel of winter.
I began by stamping the snowflakes with a background stamp from Hero Arts.  I placed it in my Misti then inked it up with Mowed Lawn Distress ink and stamped.  Using the Misti is such an great way to stamp with large bkg stamps and get a clear, evenly inked image as you can repeat stamp over and over until it's perfect.  
I stamped the scene image from Amuse then coloured with Copic markers, cut out and pop dotted it over the bkg.  I added some puffy white paint to the roof for interest which you can't really see in the photo.  I stamped the sentiment from Simon Says and added it to a white card.
