A Snowman's Best Friend.....Dasher!!!


Okay, I love sketches.....we've established that!! So I try to get to Beate's weekly Sketch Challenge when I can and I was able to squeeze this one in!! It's a perfect layout for a large stamp like this one....A Snowman's Best Friend by Whipper Snapper!

I stamped this cute and cuddly pair on watercolour paper with Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink.....what a shocker!! Then I used my SU markers to colour them in. I also used my Aquapainter to shade the snow, my Sakura Stardust gel pen for the shiny bits and a 20% gray Prismacolor marker to shade around the whole thing! I added Stardust Stickles to make the snow all sparkly and I used my white Signo gel pen to add a little somethin' somethin' to the black areas.

I sponged all around the main image, around the Dasher patterned paper by Basic Grey and around the scalloped circle punch. The card base and matting are Old Olive and I added a bit of Real Red to mat the sentiment and two strips of red grosgrain ribbon. And OF COURSE I pop dotted the main image!!

So ole boxer boy Floyd got the boot on Dancin' with the Stars tonight.....I say it couldn't have been too soon!! But I was stunned when Mel B. was also in the bottom two!!! NOT good! She and Max are superb.....not to mention that I love to watch him dance with his shirt off.....whew!!!

And today (Wednesday) is the last day to get your entries in for the Pink Cat Card Contest!!! You have until midnight EST tonight, so you still have time!! There are some fabulous entries and I'm so thrilled that you all took part!!! I can't WAIT to give away these stampin' great prizes!!! Woohoo!! So what are you waitin' for?? Go stamp something!!!
