High Hopes Snowflake Challenge

Hello stampers!

With snowflakes teasing us almost every day here in London, High Hopes is challenging you all to get our your paper snowflakes!

My gorgeous Tim Holtz snowflakes were anxious to escape their drawer and come out to play.

They've joined this gorgeous little High Hopes Santa (Santa's List) from the fabulous new 2011 Christmas release in my attempt to merge "cutesy Santa" with "antiquey distress".

I've stamped Santa on Copic XPress It with Memento ink and coloured him with Copics.  I've punched him with an oval Nestie and mounted him on another oval paper.  I've used the gorgeous new Christmas paper 6x6 from My Mind's Eye.  Tim Holtz has a great choice of snowflakes out this year and I've used his edge die and his snowflake dies.  I used my Xyron to adhere the snowflakes.  I've distressed everything within an inch of it's life here.  I've used Glimmer mist, distress inks, and glitter.  He took a while to dry!

Come and join in the fun - create with snowflakes & High Hopes and enter to win some GORGEOUS new stamps!

Challenge # 122 is open for two weeks starting today!
