Happy Friday! I can't believe that it is Friday already again. With working full time again, the days are so jammed full of lots of work to do, the days just fly by.
I was happy to see that this weeks theme was 'snow on your card' because I'm still working on Christmas card orders, and this theme fits right in. I'm using an image I bought last year called Lulu's Snowman. I didn't have time to colour her up in time for Christmas last year.
Well you already know that I stamped her on Bella's bestest paper, but this time I coloured with Copics - I wanted to use the Mauve Copics #RV91,95,99.
So I rummaged through some pretty papers from Memory Box and found this piece. It's not really Christmas paper, but it has some red and green in the background along with the mauve - perfect. So I coloured up Lulu usng the copics and then did some shading with some pencils. I did colour the snowman's hat with pencils - I don't know why I did, but I just did.
For my snow I added some white liquid pearls to the snow flakes falling and some glitter on the ground. Trim on the hat, and scarf were done with white flocking.
I know you probably think the flower just doesn't fit for a Christmas card, but I could not find any ribbon I liked, and secondly the ribbon just didn't look right. So I thought maybe a flower - hmmm pulled out some Prima flowers and this one I used was just the right mauve tones on the tips of the petals. Then punched some leaves using MS leaf punches. I added some glitter to the flower using a quickie glue pen.
I know there are some gorjuss cards being posted over on Bloggabella, so be sure to stop over there and leave a comment - then you have a chance to win some bella bucks.
Next week our theme will be HOLIDAY WISHES. So dust off some of those Bella chrismtas images and get the coloured up! Email Emily by thursday night your submission.
