Snowboard Ride!

I'm sorry...I have another Christmas card to share today...I think I must be trying to cool myself down! I made another 'smooshed' background made using Distress Inks (Broken China, Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon & Chipped Sapphire) on watercolour paper...then stamped my SImon Says Stamp 'Falling Snow' background stamp in Versamark, and heat embossed it using WOW 'Sparkling Snow' embossing powder. I used various dies (Clearly Besotted 'Tree Landscape' and Lawn Fawn 'Stitched Hillside Borders') to create a snowy mountain scene, then added a sentiment from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous. The chicken is of course a Penny Black stamp...he's called 'Snowboard Ride'...I coloured him using watercolour pencils, then fussy cut him out and popped him up on some 3D foam pads.
