Crazy 4 Challenges 109-Heat it up!

Before we get into today's challenge, as this week is a sponsored challenge, we need to introduce this month's sponsor which is Outlines Rubber Stamps. They have lots of fun stamps on there site, so if you haven’t visited them before you might want to head on over there to see their range. Outlines has generously offered a $25 gift certificate for one lucky person who plays this week's challenge. I was very lucky to be on their Design Team and I have to tell you, the stamps are VERY DEEPLY ETCHED and the Rubber, Buttery Soft!

Now it is time for our challenge, Tammy is back to challenge us all this week. The holiday season is heating up! So our challenge today is to create something for an upcoming holiday and to incorporate heat embossing in your creation!

For my card, I used this awesome Winter Owl  I stamped the owl onto White Cardstock with Memento Black Ink. I coloured my image with my Touch Twin Markers  ( you can see the colour map below, if you'd like to use a similar colour combination~

I then sponged the whole background with Not Quite Navy ink and embossed the tiny snowflake (Joy2Christmas-The {Stamps} of Life) with Silver Embossing Powder. See the Soft Fluffy Flower Soft on the Owls hat? This is the BRAND NEW ULTRAFINE WHITE. It just arrived in my mailbox yesterday. I can't believe how unbelievably soft and fluffy it is!

If you decide to play along with us, all you have to do is create a card/project and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword C4C109. Don't forget to go  back here and link it on Mr Linky so that everyone else can see it too.

 Follow the links on my sidebar to see what my favourite "crazies" have been up to all week and to see some more fun images from Outlines!
