SC224 Up on the Rooftop

Eek! It’s the 15th of the month and I haven’t made a single Christmas card yet this month (I'm in a challenge to make 5 a month)! So I’m using Sketch Challenge SC224 to get me started!

My "roof" was created by punching a few strips of dark green cardstock with the Scallop Edge Punch. I then drug the scalloped edges across my Whisper White ink pad for "snow". The "snow" on top of the roof was drawn in with my blender pen and Whisper White ink.

I've noticed that dipping my blender pen into Whisper White is TOXIC! I could never seem to clean all the white out of that tip. So I wrapped a piece of tape around that end of the blender pen and it is now "reserved" for Whisper White only.

Stamps: Hanna Stamps Santa Chimney Riley, Itty Bitty Backgrounds
Paper: Night of Navy, a dark green from Bazzill, Basic Grey Wassail
Ink: Whisper White
Accessories: Copics, Prismacolor pencils and Goo Gone, Scallop Edge Punch, Artichoke Ribbon from SU, Navy Ribbon from Pink Hedgehog

Hi Michelle,
LOVE how you did the roof - I never would have thought of that. Putting that technique in my little folder for when I make Christmas cards.
Oh, and gorgeous card by the way!
