I totally love this stamp from Motivet, a new one in my collection.  I bought three of Hilda doing different things because I think she is adorable and just makes me smile when I look at her.  I colored her using both copic markers and coloring pencils with the blending stump.  I also accented some of the copic area with further color by adding coloring pencils and smoothing it out with blending stumps as our fearless leader at Prairie Fairy Digital Stamps taught me.  I wasn't sure about the color combination at first, but now I really love it.  It is from Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 22, however the deadline was yesterday so I am too late to enter it.  The sketch is from Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge 46.  This sketch is open to so many possibilities.  I am also entering it at Cute Card Thursday's challenge - dimensions.  Oh yeah, I was going to give some details, I ran the pink and red rectangle through the Big Shot with the Swirly EF, then matted them.  I used crystal effects on the snowboard, although my copics weren't quite dry and it smeared a little.  I have iridescent ice EP on the punched out stars and put liquid applique in the fur areas, let dry overnight and then heated it up.  Hope you like it as much as I do!!
