Angelica's Snowman, Inky Impressions

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I am here to bring you some Inky Impressions inspiration today. For this card I used a stamp called Angelica's Snowman and the If a Snowflake Fell sentiment from the Inky Impressions store.

I did something a little different with the snow and snowman this time.  I tried using the stippling technique because I wanted her to look magical and have a bit of texture to her.  I used my cool greys and my opaque white and silver glitter Shake pens.  I'm not sure how happy I am with the outcome though.  I will do this image again with the regular blending methods to share with you all and then we can decide which is better.
My papers are MME, a collection from last year that I love love love!  It is called Be Merry.  I used my Martha Stewart snowflake punches and some pearls and such from my stash. Here is a different view of the card...

Don't you just love adding in those nontraditional christmas colors?! And here is a closer look at the stamps...

Angelica's Snowman
I colored the stamp using my Graph'it Markers.  I added a bit of stippling around the sentiment as well.  Here are the color combinations I used:
Skin: 4120, 4125, 4155, 4180, 4135
Hair: 1210, 1230, 1270, 3250
Pink: 5110, 5120, 5130, 5140
Green: 8110, 8240, 8120, 8180, 8190
Red: 5220, 5240, 5270, 5280
Snow: 9100, 9101, 9102
