Frosty Days

Hi all,
I'm still in my holiday card mode.  For some reason, I just love Christmas and holiday images.  Best time of year for crafting - definitely.

So, I was playing with my Uptown Girls images again from Stamping Bella, and came up with this one:

My card base is Bashful Blue CS.  All the patterned papers are from the SU Frosty Days DSP pack (really unique holiday colours), and my mats are white and Close To Cocoa.  For the strip across the middle, I punched the white piece with my Martha Stewart Icicle edge punch, and I added Martha Stewart pearls around the whole card. 

I stamped the lovely Uptown Girl Eve Under the Mistletoe onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured her in with Copics, and added some outside shading with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.  I also added some glitter dots all around her for some extra whimsy :-)  The sponging around the image is done with Antique Linen and Walnut Stain Distress inks.

Copics used:
*Skin: E000, E00, E11, E13, R02
*Hair: E71, E77, E49
*Dress: B32, B34, B37, B39
*Trim: C00, C1, C3
*Belt: C1, C5, C9, Yellow Atyou Spica Glitter pen

See you tomorrow for the last Bellarific Friday of the year!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
