2 Christmas Tales

Today we are having a Review Day Hop at Whimsy Stamps and the October release is a beauty so make sure you hop along to each blog and take a look.  There is a prize of 2 new release stamps hidden somewhere along the way so please leave a comment today for a chance to win.

For my card I used the super cute stamp by Crissy Armstrong called  2 Christmas Tales.  Aren't they adorable!!!

I created a pretty sunset by sponging on some pink, purple and blue ink and I also used the blue to create some snow mounds and added some frosted lace stickles for the snow.  I coloured the rest in with my copics and I was really happy with how cute they turned out (although I think they'd look cute no matter how well you coloured them actually)!  I added some shine to the candy cane and their noses with glossy accents and used some Fun Flock on their hats too.

Ingredients :

Card : x-press it, crumb cake
Ink : pool party, wisteria, pip, stazon, memento black
Other : big shot, nordic sweater ef (sizzix), Slider 3 die, subtle candy dot, fun flock, frosted lace stickles, glossy accents, copics
