Santa Paws & Snowflakes...

Hi there crafty peeps!

I managed to get my card finished just in time for Eclectic Ellapu's "Team Purple"  challenge this week. It is being hosted by my fellow DT member Jacki, and boy oh boy has she picked a fun one this week!

“Santa Paws & Snowflakes”

I bought "Bismarck" here which just so happens to be a 
Mo's Digital Pencil image just for the occasion.

I printed Bismarck out onto white Gina K card stock (which I have mixed feelings about btw), and then coloured him up with my Copic markers. My hands cooperated for the vast majority of the week thankfully.

All the papers are from my stash, and I embossed the tan coloured piece with a SU folder called Petals-A-Plenty. I put a touch of Icicle Stickles in the centre of each flower as you can barely see that I did in fact emboss it.

The snowflakes and evergreen are Martha Stewart punches which I have layered for more dimension. (I am not 100% on the border punch because I borrowed it from a friend and made a ton of borders last year while I had it in my possession).

Other elements used; Stardust stickles, Smooch Illuminate, red gems, distress ink and an atyou Spica pen on the trees.

The sentiment is from a LOTV collection.

Copic colours Used:

Dog - E33, 31, 30, 00
Hat/Bow/Scarf – R27, 24, 22, 21 w5 BG10 C00
Bone – E42, 41, 40

Well peeps, I hope you will join us this week for this fun challenge. We have a ton of inspiration for you created by my fellow Eclectic Ellapu DT’eamies.

So on behalf of Bismarck and myself, thank you for stopping by. JS
