More merry wishes

Phew, what a week!  I’m all sorted for Christmas now though after the day I had battling the traffic, road works, crowds and ragey shoppers if I’ve forgotten anything then too darn bad.  All this ridiculous hoopla for one day …. I just don’t get it.  I saw two old biddies about to bash each other over a packet of stuffing.  Seriously, no jokes.  I gave them a wide berth, I can tell you haha.

When I coloured the image for this card I coloured it twice (I’m all about making as many cards as I can at Christmas lol) so although the colours are the same I think using the dark red Nordic paper changed the image up a fair bit from the other card.  I also used white and gold paper flowers instead of the red flowers, the red paper sets them off beautifully.

I used one of my new digital Christmas Sentiments (which comes in black, red, gold and silver) and cut it into a banner.

Merry Wishes was coloured with copic markers:

Skin: E04, 11, 00, 000, R20
Hair: E27
Fur and skirt: W3, 1,0, 00
Red: R39, 37, 35, 32
Green: BG99, G28, 24, 21

I used watercolour paper and glitter paper to make the poinsettias (using my Lily Flower die set) and I used tiny gold jingle bells for the centres.  I used a little Christmas Light button that I bought here in the UK, Whimsy Stamps has very similar buttons here

I absolutely slathered this card in glittery bling because …. XMAS!!

  2. Beautiful card Bev, love all the bling and glitter and glitz looks amazing. So get what your saying about the lead up to Christmas, people going mad buying buying buying. I like to go towards the end of the Christmas period at about 11pm at night when the shops are doing all nighters. Hardly a person in sight, I pick one store each year and if I cant find what the person has hinted they want, then a gift voucher fixes the problem and I dot stress out. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas day filled with joy and happiness.
