Hambo Stamps Snowman Sled

I have a fun Hambo Stamps card to share with you today!

I used Copic markers to color this fun stamp:

BG000, BG11, BG23
YR04, YR07, YR09
N1, N3, N5
C0, C1, C2
B0000, B01

I kept my layout nice and simple using Hero Arts layering paper in Pool, Via Vellum Black to mat my focal panel and Copic X Press it for coloring.  My snowflake is made using a die as well as the button,  I rounded the corners to soften the edges and thought I was finished.

I picked up my card and noticed there was a brown speck on the upper left corner so I brushed it off and it left a spot, oh no!  I've been playing with making homemade candles recently so I think that's what it might have been.  That's when I decided to add the white pearls.  I covered the smear with the first white pearl, then used my ruler to imitate the line of the snowman sledding down the hill so I could place my other pearls to mimic/duplicate that line.  Black dots would have worked for me too but for some reason I went with white.  Whew... nice save (=
