2 Challenges and my DT card

Hello all,
I hope you all had a great start to your week. Mine was great...my DH is back to work...yay!! He was so bored being at home and not able to do too much, so he was looking forward to going back yesterday.

I was looking for some inspiration the other day and came across Friday Sketchers challenge. Loved the layout so I decided to play along. I combined it with The Pink Elephant Challenge #23 and my Motivet DT card. This weeks Friday Shetchers #60 is sponsored by Motivet. The theme this week at TPE is a color challenge and the colors are Red, Light Blue and Darker Blue.

The adorable image I used is "Dexter Building a Snowman" and "Let it Snow" sentiment..



I stamped the image onto smooth water color paper with black Versa fine and embossed it with clear EP. I painted Dexter with Tombows and the snow and snowman with icicle H2O's. I used a black glaze pen to darken the dots on Dexter's scarf and the snowman's mouth and eyes. I cut the image out with my labels nesties. I used silver brilliance on the edge of the label and added clear EP and heat set. While it was hot I dipped it again into the clear EP and it made a thick coated edge.I added some glue to the snow and sprinkled on some diamond dust.I used my MS border punch for the white and embossed it with CB folder. I punched the snowflakes with a MS punch. The designer paper is from Sandylion. The sentiment was stamped onto white shrink film with black Stazon and heat set and shrunk.

I hope you like it....Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great day...
