Holiday Cheer!!..Motivet

Even though I am too late for the last Motivet # 51 Sketch Challenge..this card is totally inspired by that Fabulous sketch.

The lovely traditional Motivet image I used for this card is called "Santa in chimney" Right now Motivet is having a Spectacular Sale.....25 % off on this and all their images!!

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 not use copics over prismacolor pencils or the wax from the pencils will ruin your copic tips!)*

I used versamark and gold embossing powder to heat emboss on the corners of the image and sentiment. The sentiment "happy holidays" is from hero arts.

Ink - memento black, barely banana, creamy caramel. Papers - GP white, Treasures, Basic Grey, Fancy Pants. Accessories - flowers, brads, gold embossing powder, stickles, paper doily, lace (a lovely from Tina - Thank you!!), snowflakes, holly, scribbles, glitter, stitching.

I hope everyone had a Wonderful Christmas! and is enjoying the holidays!! We had lots of good company and food!. It is very out here...We are going to settle in for a quiet New Years...maybe watch a movie and nibble on some crackers, cheese and leftover fruitcake...Yum!!

Thanks for visiting.... your lovely comments and for all the Wonderful Inspiration you've all shared through out the last year!!....Have a Safe Happy Healthy New Years Everyone!!!
