I hope you have been having a lovely weekend and not getting too spooked! We went to a Halloween Party last night and the costumes were wonderful; even Otto the dog had a little skeleton outfit on!
This is Dr Hubby, and if you don't recognise the costume it is the eponymous 'superhero' from the film Kick-Ass!
I went for a more traditional Halloween costume...
Back to business though and it's on with the Christmas cards for me, using the fab new sketch from the Papertake Weekly Challenge for inspiration this time;
So, I am absolutely loving this James Bear stamp and thought he would look fab teamed with some frosty colours and snowflakes. I have gone for several layers as usual and distressed them with a Tim Holtz distressing tool before inking them just a touch and stitching them.
I have coloured James pretty much the same as my last card using him but with a different colour hat and scarf! I also gave the snow some Liquid Pearls treatment :-)
The snowflakes are a new die for me and wow, they are just gorgeous - so detailed and elegant :-) I have to say that the Impression Obsession dies are always such good quality, cut beautifully and look fabulous.
