I learned a new technique that I decided to try out on this card. I think it was on the Skipping Stones Design blog and I don't remember what they called it, but here's the gist of it. You stamp a solid image in a very light ink color and then color over it to create a colored image. That's what I did with this stamp from SU!'s "She's all That" set. The picture below is what it looks like stamped with black ink. I repeatedly stamped it until it was light enough (it probably took 5-6 impressions without reinking), then colored it in with colored pencils. Since it was so light, I could also alter the image; I added boots, 3/4 sleeves and a belt. In the third picture, you can see I added white flock powder around the hem of the dress and sleeves to create a fur look. It shows so much better in real life.
The sketch is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday #143 and I used the Crimbo Crackers #10 challenge to create a Christmas card for a female and the Crafty Hazlenut's Challenge #62 to create a Christmas card using red. The sentiment is from Verve's "Ornamental Christmas" and the die is Verve's "Charming oval" die set.
