Critter Monday

It's Monday but you don't have to groan because the great thing about Monday is a new Critter challenge! It is also a new month which means a new sponsor. Our fabulous sponsor for December is Bugaboo Stamps.

This week at the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog, we were challenged to use this sketch and the colors purple and teal.

I flipped it and used the image from Bugaboo called Snowman bells. He is just one of several snowman available at Bugaboo Stamps. I love the dp I used. It is some I got at HL 'just because'. That's where the teal and purple part of the challenge come in. I colored the image with watercolor pencils and used teal/purple on the scarf and purple on the hat. I then used a gold pen over the ribbon on the bells and hat and also the swirls in the hat. The snowflakes (teal and purple again) are punched with the CM punch and popped up with dimensionals. The sentiment is punched with a CM decorative square punch, stamped in Taken with Teal and popped up.

supplies- paper from HL, misc., SU ink, SU and Derwent watercolor pencils, gold pen, dimensionals, CM punches, image by Bugaboo Stamps.

For more wonderful inspiration, check out the other DT members' projects.
