Whiff of joy and X-mas card challenge

This week on the Whiff of joy blog the challenge is to use green in your card. I still don't have any Whiff of joy stamps, sigh, so I'm hoping to win some as there is a great prize on the blog. The image I have used here I've gotten from my friend Coni. She has stamped up the image on watermark paper and since it doesn't work that well with my promarkers I used my tombows to color in the image. I found a great tutorial on Stampartic on how to color with tombows and I wanted to give it a try. I have the markers and don't want them to lay around and dry out. I also want to be able to use the stamped up images I got from my friend. I didn't use that much color since it's a snowman, but on the parts I did I think it turned out pretty good.

The few images I have from Whiff of joy are wintery ones so I decided to combine the challenge with just Christmas and birthdaycards challenge. where there was a sketch to follow. Actually you can win a Whiff of joy stamp there too, lol.
