Paper Smooches Love Never Melts

Hey everyone!  I couldn't wait to play with my Cool Dudes stamp set from Paper Smooches...even though it has actually been spring-like days here!  I just love the cute little snowman, and finally got time to play with them!  I am still a recovering craft supply hoarder, so I love that I am actually using all my new stash, instead of waiting for the *perfect* way to use it all...I layered some Papertrey ink shimmer paper with vellum paper for the snow.  Then I tried out coloring with my new Prismacolor colored pencils and blended with Gamsol.  I loved the way it turned out, but I don't know really know enough about Gamsol to say I'm hooked.  I don't know how safe it really is, even using with the windows open...I wouldn't call it odor free either?!?!  But, it was fun to try a new technique!  Here is my card:

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Cool Dudes, Sentiment Sampler, Bold Buzzwords (for the heart)~Paper Smooches
Coloring: Prismacolor premier colored pencils (with Gamsol)
Markers: Wink of Stella (clear)
Paper: White Shimmer Paper~Papertrey Ink, B&T Doodlebug-Frosty Friends, Vellum from my stash
