With an hour or two to spare, I'm playing along for the first time with a Merry Monday Christmas challenge! I took the opportunity of yesterday being World Card Making Day to organize myself just a little bit (nothing too drastic) and decide on some challenges I wanted to enter. This week at Merry Monday they are looking for polka dots and/or stripes. I managed both:
I started with the falling snow stencil, mixing some glitter into my embossing paste for a little extra shine. When it was dry, I sponged on some blue distress ink for the sky. Then, worried that my snow was too random to qualify as polka-dotted, I decided to use my sweatered reindeer. I love using the speech bubble sentiments with either him or his snowflake-sweater-clad counterpart! The speech bubble is embossed in red glitter embossing powder, which my camera refused to capture in all its glory. The sweater dots are stickled and his nose and hooves glossed up with some black Enamel Accents. I matted the little scene onto some striped paper just to be completist. ;)
And with the clock ticking, I shall get this entered! I'm also adding this to the Anything Goes category in Hero Arts' current Holiday challenge, and to Simon Says Stamp's Monday challenge... what better finishing touch than a sparkly red sentiment?
