A Warm Changito Sketch

Yep, I'm hooked on these Changito images. I just can't stop using him. He looks so festive in his Christmas colors and I love his little shivering legs, LOL. I stamped him on Basic Grey paper, so it has that distressed look to it. He's colored in with Koh-i-noor pencils and OMS. I added Stardust Stickles to the green parts and some white liquid applique on his hat, mitten and boots! I found the Hero Arts poinsettia parts at Archivers awhile back. They are made out of felt so it will mail perfectly! I used sketch challenge 205 for my layout. My card measures 4.25 x 3.75. Happy Stamping!

Stamps: Changito Cocoa (Stampendous), Chicken Scratch (TAC, retired)
Paper: Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Basic Grey - Figgy, Riding Hood Red
Ink: Palette Noir & Burnt Umber
Other: Artichoke grosgrain, circle Coluzzle, brown Scrapper's Floss, square Nestabilities, Koh-i-noor pencils, OMS, white liquid applique, Stardust Stickles, Hero Arts felt poinsettia and leaves, brad
