Dan on Sledge - Digital Stamp Boutique - PFP DT

Good morning everyone and thank you all so much for the lovely comments you have left for me.    Last year I was really struggling to make enough Christmas cards and have to admit I ended up using some bought ones for the girls at work..... shame on me :(...  This year is going to be different and I am going to make some every month, so this is my first for 2013.

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers 'Whatever the Weather' a nice broad subject, rain, sunshine, snow, whatever you fancy. I have used one of our sponsor's images 'Dan on Sledge' as I do need to make more male cards.

 He is cut using SB squares and layered onto a scalloped square. Backing paper is from my stash and the die cuts are all Bazzill basics. Snowflakes are a MS punch. Sentiment is from LOTV on another scalloped square. Ribbon from my stash.

I masked him off and added trees from Sheena Douglas 'Little bit Sketchy' stamped with Ice Spruce Distress ink.  He is coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers (the lovely new orangey red ones).  I added distress ink to the background and perfect pearls to the falling snow.  I also added glistening snow writer to the snow under the trees and under his sledge but it doesn't show in the pics :(

The inside does match the front.

I hope you will join us in this weeks challenge and don't forget to have a look at the fabulous cards the other DT members have made.

As I said our sponsor this week is DigiStamp Boutique and they are offering the winner a choice of 6 digital images from their shop.... so many gorgeous ones to choose from.

Your color choice is nice - the blues and grays for winter and the pop of red for contrast. You did a lovely job of masking your image when you stamped the trees. Thanks for sharing your art with us at The Perfect Sentiments Challenge.
