BRRR.....

Happy Sunday - Karen has another great sketch for us this week AND I didn't even mess around with it!!


It's really cold here in Calgary  so I've been bundled with a scarf like my image for this weeks SSSC but I think it's too cold to even skate outside like this sweet image from TCP Deep Breath.  


Now I started making 1o of these because I was going to keep it simple.  The image is stamped on bella's bestest white cs with memento tuxedo black ink.  the skates and his nose are coloured with copics, the bunny is coloured with Caran d'ashe pencils and gamsol.  I also did a light shading around the image with pencils.  After I had it all coloured up I decided it would be brilliant to have his ear outside the nestie so I then re-stamped the image and then used a clear glaze pen for the ice and a gelly roll pen for the blades.  I then cut out the original image and paper pieced it then I cut and paper pieced the scarf and part of the hat which is stamped on ep's dots & stripes Christmas collection cs. Then I used white liquid applique and glitter for the trim.  I let it dry a bit then used the heat gun for a bit of a fluffy look.  I mounted the olive cs onto the black cs then ran them through my big shot with cuttlebugs snowflakes embossing folder.  Added the strip of ds paper and that was it - yep a quick and simple card NOT!!  I finished this one to get my post done now I have to finish the others!

Please stop by the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers blogs to see their creations with Karen's sketch and remember if you play along with us this week link your card on Karen's blog.

Oh this is so cute!!! I took this stamp out on Friday with intentions of using it. Wonder where he got to? LOL!
Love the scarf and hat!

This weather is ridiculous and I know I'll be looking forward to the 9C on Tuesday! Gotta love Alberta weather!

Aww, you and your BFF both did bunnies today and both popped an ear out! Your shading with the pencils is excellent and I love all the little extra touches: clear glaze pen for the ice, gelly roll pen for the skate blade, paper piecing his super cute (and warm) scarf and then the liquid applique! Perfect card perhaps not fast and easy but certainly sweet! One down, nine to go :)
