This weeks Critter Sketch challenge is twofold -- Christmas in July and use a given sketch. I chose a stamp from the Artistic Outpost stamp sheet Snowy Woods. The image was colored using pan pastels. The background was dry embossed using one of the Tim Holtz texture fade embossing folders, Bricked. I also used pan pastels to highlight the texture. The holly and the Merry Christmas are outline stickers which I rubbed black pastels over to distress them a little.
