Happy Holidays - Motivet DT - Sketch Challenge!

Check out this weeks Fabulous sketch challenge at the Motivet Inspiration Blog. The Motivet DT members have made Beautiful example cards.....join in the challenge and you will have a chance to win some Wonderful stamps!! You can see the sketch I used in the top right hand corner of my blog...clicking on it will take you right to the sketch challenge post.

I used two Fabulous Motivet stamps on this card...."Boy Building a Snowman" and the sentiment "Holiday Greetings"

The image is colored with copics under the prismacolor pencils and a touch h20's to deepen the shade and add a little sparkle. *(Please remember.....do not use copics over prismacolor pencils or the wax from the pencils will ruin your copic tips!)*

A first for me....I've used polar white flower soft on the snow and pom pom of the boys hat. The snowman has a light sprinkle of reg glitter. The large snowflake is made of chipboard...the smaller brown snowflake is just made from a cereal box...using a sizzix snowflake die. Both snowflakes are covered with SU creamy caramel ink and MS snow. I've sprayed the sentiment and white snowflakes with tattered angels glitter mist.

Ink - memento black, creamy caramel, bordering blue. Papers - GP white, dcwv, BG Eskimo Kisses I received from Petra. Accessories - SU Scallop punch, snowflakes, glitter, flower soft, brads, raffia, lace, MS and EK success snowflake punches. The pretty snowflake charm is available at Stamp and Create online store.

The weather here is still pretty nice...A few snow flurries today...but not enough to even cover the ground. I'm off now to watch a christmas movie with hubby called...."Four Christmases".

Before I leave I want to wish everyone in the US a Very Happy Thanksgiving!!

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone!!...and Thank you for all your Lovely comments!!
