I haven't joined in the Sketch Saturday challenge for a couple of weeks now but when I saw the new one for this week and knowing it was going to be an almost quick card just had to join.
The image is called Igloo, one of the many new ones that Mo has drawn recently and I knew that this image was not going take long to colour so good for Christmas. Of course it would take longer if you decided to colour and cut out the ice blocks which was one of my first ideas soon scrapped that one.
I knew I wanted to use the Joy snowflake border and snowflakes did have an issue get the little blighters out of the die. Years ago I did Parchment craft but my hands soon made me give that up but I had a bar of soap to twist my embossing tool in to help it glide but over the course of time the bar of soap has harden so I use this to rub over the dies and then brush lightly off it works a trick.
The papers are Echo Park and I used a mixture of Flower Soft and Fun flock for the little Eskimo clothes then used an abundance of glamour dust.
Pleased how this card turned out and once the dies behaved how quick.
