More Christmas in July

And more playing with my Gerda Steiner Designs stamp set Peeking Friends.

I've used the Santa from the set for CAS Christmas (Santa) and Less is More (traditional colours) Card Challenges.

I've Copic coloured up my image on Xpress-It blending card stock and used the following combos to colour him up.

Face: V12, E00/93
Red: R32/35/46
Mittens: 100/C8/10
Whiskers: C00/0/1/2

I have also covered the mittens with Nuvo Crystal Glaze so they look real shiny and I have used a Versamarker pen and then WOW clear hologram sparkle on the hat's fur and pom pom.  See the picture below, hopefully you can see a bit of shine and sparkle.

I have also used my Gina K Masters Layout 2 for the lovely card panels in the middle. I love them I could not cut out that straight or that precise and am very happy with that purchase.

I have stamped the sentiment from an old retired SU! stamp set called Oh, Goodie using the new in-colour Sweet Sorbet.

Again I'm really liking my normal tag stamp images on a card! Here's a link to when I mass produced a pile of tags using the elf from the set. 

Happy to report that my card was ShowCASed at Less is More
