Rescue Squad

It's time for a new challenge at Winter Wonderland and our theme is 'Outdoor Fun.  We're sponsored by Dr Digi's House of Stamps who are offering the winner two digi stamps of their choice.

I'm entering the Cardz 4 Guys 'Things with Tails' challenge, Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge 'Anything Christmas Goes' and The Merry Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes + Christmas'.  I'm also heading over to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk
Image: Dr Digi's House of Stamps 'Rescue Squad'
Sentiment: Marianne Design 'Ice Skating Don' (magazine freebie)
Punch: Woodware Snowflake
Ink: Versafine Crimson Red
Colouring: Promarkers
Other: Stampendous White Fun Flock, Pearl Diamond Spray and Sparkle, Wink of Stella
Snippets: Tree background paper, red matt and white silk card

I trimmed the background paper, popped it into my MISTI and stamped the sentiment in the top corner - stamping it a couple of times to get a deep colour.  I layered the paper onto red card and attached it to the card blank.  I resized the digi and printed it onto white silk card.  This was fussy cut before being coloured with Promarkers.  I added Fun Flock to the edge of the hood and then attached the image to the lower corner of the card with foam tape.  I punched three snowflakes from white card and sprayed them with Spray and Sparkle before attaching them to the card.  To finish I highlighted the sentiment with a Wink of Stella.
