Christmas Knit

I considered calling this post "Tanker Tuesday". This is one of the cards I made a while back that I didn't like, so I tanked it! LOL! Come on...tell the truth. We ALL have those, don't we?

The stamp I used is Penny Black's Christmas Knit! . I stamped it on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder.

The stamped image was colored with Tombow (water based) markers. I added Frosted Lace Stickles to the hat.

The red and blue snowflakes were cut and embossed with a Snowflake Wonder Spellbinders die. The clear snowflake is a Heidi Swapp ghost snowflake embellished with Stickles.

The designer paper is from my stash, and the cardstock is Pink Prismatics dark, and Classic Red Prismatics .

My lunch hour is almost over, so I'd better get back to the office now. Thanks so much for stopping by!
