Good morning and thanks so much for visiting! It's time already for the midway reminder at Penny Black and More. Our theme is simple this month - Christmas Makes. I have a hard time making Christmas cards this year, it has been unseasonably warm over here so it's hard to think "Christmas". But I finally was able to come up with something using a cute hedgehog and snowman winter stamp.
I recently bought some Neenah linen card stock, and that is what I used for my white. Love the linen texture!! I stamped using memento tuxedo ink and then colored with copic markers. I was careful not to blend too much, I don't think this paper is the best for copics, but I didn't have any issues with bleeding out of the lines, since I didn't add to many layers of color. A white faber castell pitt marker was used to add the white dots to the snowman's hat and scarf. Don't you just love the look on that snowman's face :-) The image is from the set "Holly Jolly" by Penny Black.
Stickles glitter was added for some sparkle. Designer paper is from my stash, by Stampin Up (retired).
The card has been kept simple, after coloring the image I just stamped the sentiment and snowflakes from the set "Holiday Snippets".
Hope you can come join us if you haven't already, or play again (you can enter up to 3 times). As always we have some wonderful prizes to give away!!
