HIGH HOPES CHALLENGE #54
I hope you are all having a great weekend so far. We are still having wonderful weather here, I'm enjoying every minute of it!!
Well it's time for the High Hopes Challenge and this weeks challenge is brought to us by our talented Guest Diva
Michelle N and she has chosen "Santas".
The adorable Santa I have chosen is "Woodland Santa" and the "Forest Background. I have been waiting for the perfect time to ink these images up...and here it is, Thanks Michelle....great challenge!!
I embossed the images with black and painted them with Tombows. I cut out Santa and used foam tape to layer him. I ran both images through my Spellbinder with the swiss dot CB folder to make the snow. I used my new Uni-ball pigment ink pen to add the snow on the dots and the doodles around the frame. (I just love this pen....it runs so smooth and adds the perfect amount of ink.) The fur on Santa's hat was done with liquid applique and heat set. The sentiment was stamped onto shrink film, cut and heated to shrink. The circle frame for the sentiment was made with my MM's tag maker. I added a piece of jute for the bow and Polar White flower soft for the snow on the background. This was a really fun card to make, I'm happy with the way it turned out.
Be sure to stop by the High Hopes Blog, the Diva's have some fabulous creations to inspire you.
I hope you will have time to play along
