Limited supplies challenge

First off today, if you did not sign up to win my blog candy yet you have today and tomorrow left to comment on THIS post for a chance to win this week's candy.

Today's challenge on SCS required you to use a "Christmas animal/critter" on your card and the only embellishment you could use was ribbon. Here is what I came up with:

I used liquid applique on his beard and stickles for the snow. I colored Riley with my prismapencils and gamsol rather than copics this time. I used my corner rounder punch to create the scallops on the bottom.

stamps- santa riley, everyday sentiments both from hanna stamps
ink- palette noir, real red
CS- olive, red, white, SU summer picnic dp
accessories- liquid applique, stickles, nesties, paper piercer, corner rounder punch, cb snowflake folder, ribbon

Here is another one:

This is percy from h and m stamps which was just released on Sept 1st- isn't he cute? This is actually beachtime percy but I omitted his shovel and pail and replaced them with mittens and added a hat. I used shimmerz angel wings paint on his body and SU markers on the mittens and hat which I cut out and attached to my image. I made a slit on both sides of Percy and slid a ribbon through to make his scarf.

stamps- Percy from H&M Stamps, bundle up from SU, SU twinkle wheel, drs designs sentiment
ink- eggplant, artichoke, memento tuxedo black
CS- eggplant, artichoke, white
accessories- shimmerz angel wings paint, oval nesties, white gel pen, SU oval puches, SU corner rounder punch, sledding cb folder, eggplant grosgrain, artichoke ribbon

Have a terrific day!

Blessings, Maria
