Great Impressions January 2013 Sketch Challenge!

Today is our first challenge of 2013 is this fun sketch challenge designed by our very own Erin!-

I do hope you can join us in January. You are not required to use Great Impressions stamps-but by golly you bet you get extra chances at the prize if you do!

Today I used this darling snowman stamp  Snow Friends. Actually I got this stamp to go another ct sentiment-but ran out of time in December to make it a 'Christmasy' card paired with this sentiment.   Next Year!!!

I stamped the image twice, used one image to cut out just the bodies of the snowman and adding them over the original stamped image. 

Before I added them with pop dots, I colored with grey copics around the snowmans on the bottom image and I also used a stylus with a large round end to make each cut out snowman concave.  (Use a gentle circling touch so you don't wrinkle your image) I added a sentiment that I cut out twice with my my Silhouette along with some pretty ribbon given to me by America Kuhn and finished it all off with some small  buttons.  

This month we say good bye to DT teamies Shanna and Angi-(each team member stays 6-12 months). 
Please stop in and say hello to them and welcome Cheryl as a new team member and Patti J as our January Guest Designer. I have known both these crafty chicks for several blog years, and they are both great stampers! They are sure to show off some fun creations!
