Mr Snowman

 Good afternoon everyone today I'm sharing my first Christmas card of 2021 and  also my first painting using some new Derwent Inktense paint pan sets I bought set one last year but never got to use it and  got set two as a Christmas present I really enjoyed working with the paints this was my first attempt I have two other stamps painted up which I will share soon.

I used some of my older rubber stamps to practice with this one is Mr Snowman from Lili of the Valley I have had for ages.
