Hip Hop Hangover


Today is my last day of Growing in Unity, and it's hip hop hangover.

I used the stamp Cheer Santa to get a start on my Christmas cards, and also because one of Jeanne's challenges yesterday was to use black and red, and that got me thinking about what stamps I had that would work for those colours.

I stamped the image on both white, and red, so that I could paper piece the snowsuit, pants and hat. I used fake glitter snow on the edges of the coat and hat. It adds a super great sparkle, and some great "poofy" dimension to the coat.



The beard, mustache and hair were done with opal liquid pearls. I love the shine it gives.

The boots were coloured with my black Spica glitter pen. It has sooo much shimmer to it.



I sketched in the floor to ground the image somewhat.

Thanks so much to everyone that stopped by during my week in Unity.

Congratulations to Anthonette who is the winner of the single "Be the Change". please contact Eryn to get this sent out!
