Snowman

The Simon Says Stamp work it Wednesdays  challenge is to use our favorite stamp as Stemptember is about to commence. It also runs for two months this time.

In The Netherlands, Action stores sell the brand Craft Sensations, they're sold elsewhere too, not sure where though, UK for sure. (ref no. CR0360K/A).

Anyway you can make this card with any stamp and coordinating die. Penny Black has similar ones.
I diecut the snowman from a panel to get a  window of some sorts.
Stamped my favorite Merry Christmas stamp (Hero Arts classic Christmas borders). it's an oldie, but I love that font, I stamped it with Versafine onyx black ink and heat set it.
Then I stamped the snowman with Simon Says Stamp intense black ink on hot pressed watercolor paper and  colored it with Talens Ecoline. Fixed it with fixative spray, then used the Nuvo shimmer pen (clear gloss on the hat and scarf).
Mounted the watercolor panel with red tape and adhered it to the card.
To position it I held it behinde the panel and pressed both down.
Mounted the panel with foam tape so you get depth behind the opening.
