At Simons Says Stamp we have a fabulous sketch by the lovely Domi for you to follow this week and the design team are featuring Basic Grey.
Not exactly a pretty card this week, rather sooty looking just like Santa when he's been down all those chimneys,
Magnolia's Santa Hug is coloured with Copics and I've added Fun Flock to his coat hat and inked the edges with Black Soot distress then stamped with Magnolia snowflakes. The papers are Indian Summer (the red) and Sugar Rush (the grey) the edges are distressed with the Tim Holtz distressing tool and edged with gold stickles, the base snowflake is from a Spellbinders Build a Flake 1 and the upper ones and leaves from various dies - the gold paper is from a little piece I found in my bit box and the gems in the corner are in actual fact gold although they insisted on photographing silver.
