As you can see, the top one with the Aquamarkers gives a much softer effect which I have to say I rather like.
The snowman is from the Polka Doodles Christmas Fun clear stamp set and was stamped with Memento black ink. I then coloured with either Promarkers or with Aquamarkers (which I did by scribbling colour on a ceramic plate and picking up colour with a water brush). I then cut them out.
I printed out the gorgeous snowflake paper from the Polka Doodles Magical Winter CD set and added panels of this to some 5 x 7 kraft cards (Papermania) which were embossed on one side with the Cuttlebug snowflake folder.
I added a circular white panel embossed with the same folder and topped with the snowman. I stamped a greeting from the clear stamp set included in the Polka Doodles Christmas crafting kit from Practical Publishing and stamped on snowflakes from the same set with the Brilliance Peacock ink pad. I set this on a turquoise circular mat.
