Kraft, Red and White

It's Thursday, so that means that there's something going on over at Little Miss Muffet. This week we have a new challenge for you, a colour challenge, kraft, red & white. Now you can colour on to kraft if you'd like to, or you can do as I did and colour on white, but use the 3 colours in your design. Simples!
I kept my layout simples too, just layers of punched cardstock and paper across a stamped background, because I wanted my image to be the star of this show! (plus I have room at the bottom if I want to add a name before sending out).
He is of course Letter Chester, available in rubber from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.

Oooooh I love Chester! He's so adorable isn't he?
I've used my promarkers to colour him, added a stamped greeting to his envelope, then gave him a fur trim with a glue pen and some white flock.
The snowflake stamps used on the base card are both from a set called Enchanted Christmas from HOTP. I used white craft ink from SU, then gently used my heat gun to dry the ink. Next time I stamp snowflakes onto kraft though, I think i'll use white embossing powder so those snowflakes would pop out more.
The spotty paper is also by HOTP (forever christmas).
The 2 punches used are, SU's eyelet border, and Xcut's diamond.

Here's a close up showing the white flocked fur trim...

Awwww, look how cute he is.
Have I told you how much I love Chester? ;)
