November 23, 2016 Merry Christmas




Oh what a fun sketch this was to work with this week at The House that Stamps Built.   I love Teddy Bears and Repeat Impressions has several to choose from - (I think I may have them all now).  I used  Merry Christmas 1141-F and Christmas Teddy 2007-I.  I colored Teddy with copic markersand then added some texture with a washcloth and blender fluid to give him a fur look.  On his hat I added some white fluff and a grey pearl for the bell.  I used some fun DP to put my focal image on and this card is already earmarked for my chemo buddy in Canada.  
 Hoping you will join us this week at The House that Stamps Built  using our Sketch Inspiration challenge -  You don't have to use Repeat Impressions stamps  but if you do your entry will get not 1 but 2 chances to win a $25.00 gift certificate for Repeat Impressions stamps.  If you look over on my right side bar I have a 10% discount coupon to use in the store for stamps - (Christmas is coming and they have some really cute Christmas stamps).  We are looking forward to seeing your creation.  

Now take a look at what our  Design Team has created to get you started.
