Father Christmas {Scrapy Land Challenge #26}


Today is the beginning of a new challenge from the Scrapy Land Challenge.  The theme is ADD AN IMAGE (Rubber or Digi) PLUS use any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.

The dies used to create this Christmas card were:
Elizabeth Crafts Designs - Merry Christmas Stand-Up Helper
Memory Box - Pine Needles Border
Sizzix - Susan's Garden: Christmas Holly

To start off, I stamped this Holly Berry Father Christmas rubber stamp with Staz-On ink (Jet Black) and then used Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to color the image.

A Snow Writer pen was used to add dimension to his collar and gloves and while the paint was still wet, I sprinkled on some Cloud Nine Velvet glitter.  Wink of Stella was used to accent the holly leaves and berries and a shimmer mist was spritzed over the entire card for a touch more sparkle.

Now it's your turn to create a project using a rubber or digi image and use any brand of die that Scrapy Land offers.  You'll have until Oct 4th to upload your entry.  The winner, chosen by all the designers, will receive a $15 gift certificate to go shopping at Scrapy Land.
