Sleigh Ride

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!
Come join our monthly challenge...and you could be the next winner of two High Hopes Stamps of your choice.  The details for the November Challenge can be found here.  The challenge runs through November 30th.

With the mild weather in Southern Ontario this past week, it is hard to believe Christmas is next month!  I sure hope you have started on your Christmas cards, but if not... I hope the other Diva's cards and this card, may inspire you to get working on them!

This is Sleigh Ride (SS004) and Sm. Christmas Script Sentiment (F051). Such a cute image!!!

I started by colouring the image with Tombow Markers and water. After the image was all coloured and dry, I added some Glossy Accents to the Snowman's nose, holly berries, and Penguin's feet and beak.  Frosted Lace Stickles were applied to the Penguin's pompom and the snowflake dots on the sleigh.  Gold Stickles were added to the Snowman's hat buckle. A Zig-Wink of Stella clear glitter pen was used for the fur on the Penguin's hat.  

The image was fussy cut.  The snow hills were created by using a Paper Smooches die called Stitched.  The tree dies are from Frantic Stamper called Tall Pine Trees. A white ink pad was used to sponge the trees to give it a more of a snowy appearance.  The pattern paper is from Bo Bunny-Dear Santa 6x6 Paper Pad, along with some blue, green, and white cardstock.  The sentiment was stamped with a blue ink pad.  I wanted to keep this card fairly flat so it could be mailed out; therefore, I never used any foam tape--which is quite unusual for me - LOL!  To complete this card, a few blue rhinestones were added to the corners of the card.  

Supplies Used:
Ink - Tombow Markers - N15, N35, N75, 245, 985, 847, 856, 992, 977, 533, 535, and 761.  Versamark Ink Pad, Black Embossing Powder, White Ink Pad (sponging trees), and Blue Ink Pad (sentiment).
