HO HO HO: Sunday Stamps! #114

Greetings crafty friends! Today starts a NEW challenge at Sunday Stamps!.  Yippee!
Challenge #114 runs for 3 weeks in order to incorporate Thanksgiving weekend. Your creative project needs to be submitted by Friday, December 4, 2015.   What does that mean? It means there is plenty of time for you to join us! Here's the new sketch challenge at Sunday Stamps!:

And here's what I made using the Cozy Christmas stamp set.

I went outside the box- well for me anyways, and decided to make a watercolor sky for Santa's sleigh. The colors I chose to work with are: Pool Party, Real Red and Silver.   

Here are the supplies:
Built for Free Using: My Stampin Blog

I first embossed the sleigh and snowflakes onto watercolor paper using versamark ink and embossed them with silver embossing powder (note: the snowflakes are from the Wonderland stamp set). I then water colored using Pool Party and Real Red ink refills and a wet paint brush.  After it dried, I layered it onto a piece of Home for Christmas DSP followed by a piece of Pool Party cardstock. The base of the card is Very Vanilla.  I really like Pool Party and Silver together.  Add a splash of red, and you have a festive card!

Okay, so now you have seen my creation, now its time to head on over to Sunday Stamps! and see what the other design team members have created and then join us. Remember, you have 3 weeks to submit your creation. We can't wait to see what you create!  Thanks for stopping by!
