Just Chillin'


This card fulfilled two of the challenges presented to the DT members for the Jan. 1st sneak peeks at Clear Dollar Stamps - a sketch challenge as well as to use a charm. I started out with this as a 5 x 5 square card but just didn't like it so I scaled it down to 4.25 square. I found the fish charm at JoAnn's which went perfectly with this stamp set, Winter Eskimo. The square layer in the middle of the card is making use of the Snowshoes Wheel also by Clear Dollar Stamps. Colors used include Sahara sand, Chocolate chip, Tempting turquoise, Really rust and White. Once again I used my Cuttlebug to emboss - I couldn't live without that machine!!! The sentiment is held in place by a small clip by SU. I colored in the Eskimo boy with Copic markers and popped him up. Ribbon and rhinestones and the project is complete.

Oh he's cute and how you used these colors is so unique! Really shows the contrast. Love the clip up sentiment idea too.
