Colour Splash Christmas

Hi everyone! This card is for The Play Date Café #106, which is a colour splash challenge (black, white and orange). Here’s the inspiration board:

I almost made a card with an orange car, but I really need to work on my Christmas cards, so I did a Christmas card instead.

I just got the background stamp, love it. It was white embossed on black cardstock. The tag was stamped with Memento Tangelo and the snowman was inked with Versafine Onyx Black, masking off the nose. Then the nose was inked with a Tangelo marker. The buttons were coated with black Enamel Accents (I smudged it a bit and tried to cover up with a white gel pen, not very succesfully).

Thank you for looking!!
Supplies: Hero Arts stamps: Holiday Background CG324, Smiling Snowman CG364; Memento Tangelo; Memento Tangelo marker; Ranger black Enamel Accents; BasicGrey stickers; twine; gauze, google eyes.
