sneak peak #2

I back today to share with you another Sneak Peak for this weeks release.  And it is another Christmas card - excited about that.  Now for all you Ramona fans out there this one is for you-

Mr. Penguin helps Ramona!

Now how cute is this image?  I must admit this was my second attempt at this card.  I had bright yellow dp picked out to go with her and when I went to put it together it was way too busy (even my husband agreed!), so I rummaged through some more papers and came up with what you see here.  It is by Echo Park called Christmas bells - this was from last year.  I coloured the image using copics and some shading done with prismacolour pencils and gamsol. 

Dies used are the spellbinder large square and the large postage stamp square.  Since I didn't have the right colour yellow c/s for layering, I took a piece of yellow c/s and used my copic marker to colour the paper.  I just ran the chisel end of the copic all the way around the outside edge of the c/s, and voila it matches Ramona's coat! I also used a cloud die and sponged around it to put some clouds in the sky, using versamagic sea breeze.

Finishing touches: lots of glitter, diamond dust for the ground, ribbon, white flock for the trim on her hat and pompom, and rhinestones for the corners.

Well that's it for today - don't forget about our challenge this week - it is use BLING on your card - glitter, rhinestones, pearls, you name it, if it sparkles use it! You can email Emily your card by thursday night to be included in the challenge.  Your name will also go in for a draw to win $20 in bella bucks.

See you back her on Friday.  Thanks for stopping by.
