Special Delivery

No, you are not imagining things, this is the third post in two days!  I was browsing through my favorite challenge blogs over a well deserved cup of coffee and I came across this colour challenge from The Play Date Cafe and gave myself permission to spend a few minutes stamping to find out if the picture in my head would translate to paper.  It didn't quite go according to plan, but with a few tweaks here and there, this is what I came up with:

I stamped the elf, presents and sentiment - don't you think it's perfect for this mode of transport?  Coloured the image with copics and assembled the card and ... well to tell you the truth I was distinctly underwhelmed.  Adding the snowflakes in ocean ink (very carefully, I put post its all the way round and used the second generation stamp to make it more subtle) improved things.  Some stickles, and I was ready to share - I hope you like it.

Everything necessary to make this card is available from Amuse Studio unless otherwise stated.

stamps: old AMuse rocket elf, itty bitty birthday, holiday tags, snow crystals
paper: ocean, sugar, candy cane
ink: memento black tuxedo, ocean
misc: Copics - B02, YG23, E44, E59, R29, 110, E00, B26, stardust stickles (The Paper Garden)
