Inspired By for Hero Arts

 Aren't you glad we have ushered in the new year? 
I'm still in wintry mode with one of my favorite snowman images and a new-to-me background stamp from Hero Arts. Stamping the Starry Night Background, I created a night sky by sponging Distress Oxide inks in Broken China, Blueprint Sketch and Wilted Violet on top. 

I colored the snowman and filled in the sentiment with Copic markers.
You can see the layer of patterned paper behind the die cut frame in this close up. 

The paper has subtle stripes and an ombre effect that I love! I added splatters of white gouache and a die cut snowflake or two to the focal panel. This card makes me happy! I hope it makes you smile too.

I will be laying very low this month. Meaning: staying at home. Stamping every day! I really appreciate you spending some of your moments here. Thank you!

I'm playing with the Hero Arts Stay Crafty Challenge where I was inspired by Debi's card 

NBUS, Darnell's spot where we showcase our never-been-used-stuff! Also, the Paper Players are asking for us to use something new as well.
