A Cool Christmas for TTS

This week at 'Tis The Season we have a color challenge using colors that I think of as cool (as in cold) winter colors....Marina, Sky and Slate. These are SU colors but you can use any brand you want as long as it is similar to these. 

I pulled out a new set from SU called Christmas Cuties. The boys snowsuit and scarf are all paper pieced with various Christmas DSP using Smoky Slate and Soft Sky colors and then I used markers to color the boots, gloves, hair and face. I embossed the panel he is on with the Softly Falling TIEF and then popped the image up with dimensionals. I did some light sponging with Soft Sky around the embossed panel. To get the fluff on top of his hat I used white Liquid Applique.

You're also getting a sneak peek at the sketch challenge that is coming up on Sunday Stamps this weekend! The card base is thick Whisper White and I used retired Polka Dot Parade DSP in Marina Mist for the bottom portion. The snowflakes on the white card base and the sentiment are also stamped in Marina Mist.

Head on over to 'Tis The Season to see what the rest of the DT came up with and then play along with us!
