Sweet Sunday Sketch - Siku & Shiya

It's time for another great sketch from Karen for  this week's SSSC132.  I thought I'd make another Christmas card as I need to keep the momentum going - Christmas is less than 4 months away - yikes!

My friend, Mo, gave me this Mo Manning stamp - how appropriate :)  I stamped Siku & Shiya in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it with pencils and gamsol.  I tried to remember where the darker shading should go and welcome any of your tips on shading!

The patterned paper is Karen Foster Winter Stripes.  I used SU Night of Navy as the base and on the Lacy Squares nestie and one tiny circle of SU Baja Breeze on top of the ghost snowflake - oh how I LOVE these ghost snowflakes!  I added some Liquid Applique on Siku & Shiya's coats with some glitter on top and a bit of chunky glitter as the snow base.

I love the way they are "kissing" nose to nose - Eskimo kissing!

Cheerio.....Leslie
