Santa Scene

Guess who's hosting the Totally Papercrafts challenge this week? Yep - yours truly. :) I decided to make this one of my favorite kinds of challenges - a sketch challenge! Figuring out my layout is always the hardest part for me, so I love having a sketch already in hand so I can concentrate on the fun stuff - coloring and picking out papers and embellishments! Here's this week's sketch:


Our sponsor this week is the fabulous DigiStamp Boutique. For my card, I am using one of the brand new December releases - Cute Santa Scene.


I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Do You Stack Up? - Christmas
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Winter
Charizma Cards - Christmas Makes
Craft Us Crazy - Christmas/Winter

I had a lot of fun with these little characters. After coloring them with my Copics, I added some Glossy Accents on Rudolph's nose and the snowman's carrot nose, as well as adding some microfine glitter on the ground. I layered an additional snowman onto some pop-dots to give him some dimension. (If you look carefully, you can see a bit of a shadow to the left of the snowman.)

So, now that you've seen the sketch and my sample card, head on over to the Totally Papercrafts blog to check out the rest of the team's cards. Then play along for a chance to win some cute images of your own (like this one!) from DigiStamp Boutique!
