|Christmas card - High Hopes Stamps
As you all know by now I'm a fan of Dustin Pike designs & some of his images have been turned into rubber stamps by High Hopes Stamps and although this isn't one of Dustin's I just had to add this cheeky little chap to my ever growing collection of stamps.
I had a blast "playing" with Liquid Applique and my heat gun. It gives a really life-like effect to the fluffy parts of Santa's hat, not to mention being great fun watching the paint suddenly puff up (I'm such a big kid) The edges of the background paper have been "softened" using chalk ink with ribbon adding another dimension as well as a dash of colour. Santa himself was mounted on ovals courtesy of my Nestabilities (love these dies) and thin sticky pads add depth.

Now I've got to get my bum in gear & get an entry for Doodle Dragon Studio Challenge finished, I've missed the last couple of challenges (slap on wrist) so I'm off to play with embossing folders, bling & metal!!!!!
