It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

The last couple of days have brought snow to my new home and it's actually starting to feel like Christmas! After living in the desert for 3 years, the snow is welcome sight! In the spirit of Christmas, I'm working on some holiday cards.

I'm still loving my newest Neat & Tangled purchase and so it was handily sitting on my desk for this card. I simply stamped my images and sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then masked my penguin and Santa with some masking paper. I cut a piece of masking paper with an A2 curved edge die to create my snowy landscape and then blended some blue ink into the sky line to create the horizon line. I removed all of my masks and then used my Copics to color my images. I added small shadows below my images to ground them a bit and then finished it off with some clear Wink of Stella on the star and the lights. I adhered my panel to a Fog Gray card base and it was finished!

I'm entering this card into two challenges. The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - O Christmas Tree and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.
