Speckled Snowman 11/9

So happy to have finally found the Penny Black Snowy stamp which I think was re-released 3 or 4 years ago.  I found it on Amazon as a wood stamp from, get this, 2008. I think re-released since I saw it pop up a lot recently (recent = a year or two pre-COVID).

I was inspired by Bobbi Lemanski on the Honey Bee Stamps blog. I spattered my trees with a combo of Distress Oxides and Inks and watercolored the PB Snowy image. I designed this as a take and make for some friends so kept it really simple with diecut hills and sentiment. I think they're going to love this whimsical design.
