All Wrapped Up

Ha! I bet you thought you were going to see a bunch of gifts all wrapped up nice and pretty...nope!

Today the Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge is called "All Wrapped Up".  We were to design a card or project using the following items:

Bright colored Christmas papers, a tag and a ribbon or bow.

This is what I came up with:
Isn't he cute?  
I embossed this little cutie with black detail embossing powder onto 140# cold press watercolor paper (I use Canson) and then water colored the image with Tombow Dual Brush Markers and a Niji waterbrush.  If you have never used a waterbrush, they are a wonderful little tool.  I get mine here.  My layout inspiration was from this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch #145 challenge.

We would love it if you would play along with us this week.  You can find all of the details here.

Recipe:
Stamps:  Snowman-Printworks, Merry Christmas-SU
Paper:  Prints-MME Be Merry 6 x 6, Pink-GKD, Seaglass Notecard-Memory Box, White-Neenah, Watercolor Paper-Canson
Ink:  Versamark, Memento Tuxedo Black
Extras:  Black EP, Glossy Accents (on carrot and hearts), ribbon
Tools: Tombow Markers (371, 451, 491, 761,847, 933), Nesties Fleur De Lis Squares dies, Cuttlebug, 1" square punch (to create tail on tag)
