Falling for Tombow

Hello!  So how have you enjoyed our Stampendous and Tombow USA projects the past couple of days?  Are you falling in love with the Tombow Recycled Colored Pencils as much as I have?  I must admit, I'm smitten with how beautifully these colored pencils blend.  Yep!  I have fallen in love!  Here's my project for today:

Here's a slightly different angle to show you the "texture" I created on the sweater, hat and gloves.

Here's what I used to create this card:

Tombow® Recycled Colored Pencils - Yellow Ochre 05, Brown 31, Black 33, Yellow Green 06, Green 07, Blue 15, Light Blue 13, Gray 34, Pink 22, Yellow 03, Chrome Yellow 04, Orange 28, Vermilion Red 26, Magenta 23, Violet 19, Purple 18
Pink Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Recollections™ Jolly Holiday 6x6 Paper Pad
May Arts Ribbon® Twine
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesive

Here's what I did create this card:

Stamp image with black ink onto mixed media paper
Color image with colored pencils and trim to desired size 
Create a 5"x5" square card base with a tent fold
Trim patterned paper to 4.75" x 4.75" and adhere to card base
Trim a mat for colored image and adhere image to mat
Tie twine around bottom of matted image and tie a bow
Add glitter in random spots on "snowman" and "snow
Adhere image to card front.

Here's a list of my teammates playing along today:
