I got bamboozed by my kids to buy this Close to My Heart stamp set. It has a gang of little critters in winter wear that was just too adorable to resist. After both Spencer and Angeline let out coos of cuteness for these little images, they were in my shopping cart. *sigh* Those to kids get me every time. I'm just a sucker for them.
After the stamps arrived, I doodled a bit coloring two of the images and then later turned them into cards. The one in the blue sweatshirt is colored with Copic markers and the one in the purple sweatshirt is colored using Stampin' Up markers and an aqua painter using a dry brush technique that my friend Joanie featured on her blog and uses a lot.
The card bases are embossed using a Spellbinders embossing stencil, but it's hard to tell with the photos. I'm going to have to practice taking better pictures to capture the details better.
