Changito Snow

Good morning!  It's time for a new challenge from Ruby's Rainbow; it was my turn to pick the challenge for this fortnight and it's a Recipe Challenge: 1 Critter, 2 Patterned Papers, and 3 Embellishments (Example: 3 brads, 3 buttons, 3 flowers, etc.).  Sounds fun, right?!

For my critter, I had to go with Changito...he's my all-time favorite!  The image is colored with pencils and I've accented the snow with glitter.  I pulled out some bright and cheery papers from my stash and embellished with 3 snowflakes and a smattering of pearls.  I used the sketch from The Sketch File, minus the sentiment...I couldn't seem to make it work.  (Hmmm, why do I always have trouble with sentiments?)

Image: Stampendous "Changito Snow Play" Set
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, SU! Baja Breeze and Tangerine Tango, My Mind's Eye Patterned Paper
Embellies: Art Glitter in "Polar Bear", Doodlebug Pearls
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinders Nestabilities, The Cat's Pajamas CutUps Die (snowflakes), Corner Chomper

Please check out the rest of the DT's creations here...we would love to have you play along!
