Do You See What I See? And Blog Candy

I am really enjoying crafting with this stamp set- I really love this Snow Shepherd that is looking up to the sky-seeking His Light!





I repeatedly masked and stamped the sheep for the BG. I outlined the sheep and highlighted them with Copic marker W1, and the panel sponged with Close to Cocoa.  The stamps are from Snow Shepherd from Firecracker Designs by Pamela- the words Do you see what I see were stamped for the panel on the Rt. It is matted on Bordering Blue CS by SU that is sponged with ink and distressed.
Then, the Snow Shepherd is stamped and colored with Copics:
Skin: E000 and E02   Arms E11, E31 and E33   Carrot for a nose-YR07
Star Y13  and the Shepherd's clothes: B21, B23, B24
Outlining and grounded by C0 and C2

I stamped the star on the lightpole and cut it out carefully. It is colored (Y13) and covered with stickles.
The image is outlined with Bordering Blue and I used the Torn Frame technique from the Technique Junkies.

OK- now on to the Blog Candy- I have a set of 6 Cuttlebug Folders from the Home Shopping Network to give away- leave a comment by Friday 11/27 at 8PM.  If you tell a friend and they mention your name when they leave a comment, I will put your name in for another chance to win.

Maybe I'm the only one who is bothered by this, but the sheep are on green grass, and the shepherd is made of snow.

other than that, it's a cute card.
