A Happy Heart

In my kitchen hangs a sign that says, "Joyfulness is a happy heart."  And Scripture tells us that a happy heart is good medicine.  

Coloring this snowman yesterday was good medicine for me. I think he illustrates a happy heart with his cheery face and arms bursting with gifts, and that makes me smile! 

Here are just a few details. I colored using Copic markers, adding texture with the colorless blender and a white gel pen. Masking the snowman image, I blended Distress Oxide inks and added spatters of white paint. Lastly, the snowflakes were added with a stencil and glitter paste. 

What makes this card even more fun is the pop up interactive feature. The arms and gifts are a second layer assembled on a spring.

May your day be filled with Light and Love and a cheerful heart. All good gifts. Your visits are a gift to me, thank you!
