PC #104

Happy Day Pixie Friends!!!
Time for another weekly challenge at The Pixie Cottage Blog!!
Challenge #104 is the sketch below and/or the theme is Embossing.  You know the rules use either the sketch or the theme......or if you are like me, I like to combine the two :D
You are probably thinking Christmas is over but I just couldn't resist coloring this cute Hannah!!!  As you can see I followed the sketch and also did include dry and heat embossing as well as using already embossed dp :)  Dry embossing was done with CB square lattice (which is kinda hard to see on base of card) and swiss dot folder on dp behind image.
Shows the Heat embossing using SU baroque swirl which was stamped with Versamark--sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heat set~~~~MMmm I love this stamp set!!!
Inside has more embossing!!!  Used a labels 14 for saying--- dry embossed using CB swiss dot folder and then stamped Hero Arts saying with versamark....sprinkled with white embossing powder and set with heat tool :)
Colored image with copics and pastel pencils.  Cut image and sentiment out with SB Labels 14 nesties.  Inked while still in nestie with TH Tea dye ink.  
This pic shows sparkle and shine!!  DecoArt Glistening snowwriter on hat; diamond glaze on coat buttons, coat edging, candle, bow and soles of boots;  yellow stickles on star, flame, leaves and ground!!  

Hope you can all join in this fun challenge at The Pixie Cottage Blog!!  Be sure to go and check out the wonderful inspiration the rest of this amazing DT has to offer!!!
