Warm & Fuzzy Wishes

As soon as I saw the CASology prompt KNIT, I knew I wanted to break out this sheep again. Since Melissa used it also for her card, I thought & thought about how I could change it up a bit...so I went with masking. I really like how it turned out! I also went with non-traditional Christmas colours to play along with little red wagon - it's been ages & I missed it!


Supplies: stamps from The Cat's Pajamas; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Bic & spectrum noir markers; WPlus9 banner die; Tumbled Glass & Picket Fence distress stickles; Stampendous Fun Flock; buttons from stash


See all the sparkle on the background? WELL. That came about by being a messy crafter. I painted the stickles onto the snow hill, and then I touched it while it was still wet (naturally) and accidentally transferred some glitter up near the purple scarf. WAY too far up to be part of the snow hill. Dang. So first I cursed at it, and then I realized "hey, it's still wet..." and repeatedly dabbed my finger in it & made more fingerprints over the rest of the background. Hallelujah, new background technique saves the day! 

xoxo,
Jessi
