HSC26 Merry Moosemas!

Frances is hosting this weeks Hanna Challenge over in the Splitcoast Forum.  With 100% humidity and temps in the 90's, it was hard for me to think Christmas in July, but who can resist stamping with these cute Rileys?

DP's are Basic Grey Figgy Pudding, Velvet Ric Rac is May Arts.  My circles were cut with a coluzzle and the olive ring was dry brushed with an old toothbrush loaded with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink.  I raised the circles on foam dimensional tape. The nice thing about clear stamps is that you can stick them on the acrylic block in a curve to fit the area you are stamping.  I cut the sentiment in 2 to do this.  The image is colored with Copic Markers and I added crystal stickles and fun flock to the hat and beard.

Merry Moosemas in July!
