Christmas Smile


All of these cute creatures and the sentiment come from a clear Penny Black set of stamps called Xmas Snapshot.  Using whites, tans, red, green, and charcoal cardstocks, I stamped them each several times, cut apart the elements and paper-pieced them back together.  I ran out of steam on the hedgie's scarf - it was colored with green pencil.  I also used pencils on the 2 animals for a little shading and rosy cheeks.  The background is a piece of mottled blue and white unknown designer paper that was run through the cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder.  My snow banks are just torn pieces of white cardstock, glittered along the edges. 

Thanks to Donna, I'll try entering this into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, to use 2 or more stamped Penny Black images.  Thanks, Donna! 

Supplies: whites, tans, red, green and charcoal cardstocks, 30-055 Xmas Snapshots, versafine onyx black ink, colored pencils, cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder on blue dp, glue pen, glitter
