IO Challenge- It's Snow Time

Greetings friends.  The latest IO challenge is all about snow, so I decided to focus on a snowman....aka a "flakey person."

To make the card, I created my own watercolor paper.  I started with 140lb watercolor paper and painted it with blue and purple watercolor paint (with just a hint of green).  While the paint was wet, I placed my harlequin background on top of the paint and let the paint dry while the stamp was still on top of it.  It left a ghost of an impression on the watercolor paint.  Here is a close up:

Next, I cut out my snowman and added some snowman die accessories.  Notice I am continuing my theme of winter characters carrying their coffee with them.  We all need to stay warm after all!  As a finishing touch, I added a sentiment on a white snowbank, colored the top of the snow with a light blue Copic marker and added some sparkle with a little Stickles glue.

I absolutely love this sentiment, and I have to admit, the card was a bit of an excuse to use my sentiment!
