Here is my High Hopes Stamps Christmas card for this super fun hop where I used the High Hopes Winter Wonderland Background and masked the new High Hopes Candy Cane Penguin stamp.... 
On the background stamp I made one of the snowy hills into ice for this fun Penguin to skate on.  To colour the sky and the ice I took a q-tip saturated in the Copic 0 Blender solution and wet both areas then I took a refill bottle of Copic B0000 and went over the areas I put the 0 Blender to create the shaded sky and ice.  After that was dry I then took my 0 Blender marker and added skating lines to the ice.

Here is a look at how I decorated the inside of the card.... 
Supplies Used:
* Outside Sentiment:  High Hopes Warm Winter Wishes
* Copic Markers (colours used listed below)
* Memento Inks: Tuxedo Black & Lady Bug
* Smooch Spritz: Vanilla Shimmer
* My Favorite Things Die-Namics Snowflake Trio & Sentiment Strips
* Buttons:  My Favorite Things Embellishments - Jellybean Green
Here is a close up of the fun image to see the Copic colours used....
