Snowmen at Night

Inspired by the children's book, Snowmen at Christmas! We've been enjoying it recently along with Snowmen at Night. I just love the fun illustrations in these books. I started by stamping the A Muse Snow Pals, then masked them and stamped the Brownstone several times. The tree was made by stamping all but the base of the A Muse Little Tree and then extending the lines on either side to make it look huge! I colored everything in and then added layers of sparkle to the tree using Stardust pens, Sharpie poster paint marker in gold and red, and Stickles. I also used Sharpie marker to make the lights outlining the buildings and windows. Snow was made by sponging white craft ink and some Pebbles Shimmer chalk. I colored the snowmen with a white Prismacolor pencil and then added shimmer chalk to them as well.
