I thought this cute stamp from Lily of the Valley was perfect for the theme. While mine is a rubber stamp, LOTV does have an etsy shop now with many of their stamps converted to digis, maybe this one is one of them.
It's been stamped with Versafine Onyx ink on Bristol Vellum paper and colored with my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. Some time ago I purchased a pencil coloring class from Kit and Clowder but really should revisit the class as I've already forgotten some of the tips from there...
To make the snowy background I used a mask of the same image (I had this mask from when I used the stamp previously) over the image, flicked some masking fluid over the background then, after it was dry, I inked it up using Weathered Wood Distress ink, then rubbed off the masking fluid with a paper towel.
