Christmas-ness

Over on lili of the valley, the challenge this week has been "untraditional christmas" and I used the colouring technique over at Color Me Copic and here's my take on it...



Here's a close up of ted...




Here's how I made it...
Image:
Ted and Sentiment are both lili of the valley.
Ted is stamped with memento tuxedo black and coloured with copics.
Sentiment is stamped with memento grape jelly.

Papers and Cardstock:
Pink cardstock is from Papermania
Metallic cardstock is from DCWV "the metallic stack"
Patterned papers are from the Crate Paper "Snow Day" pack

Finishing touches:
Tinsel has "starry night" stickles
Baubles have Glossy Accents on the metal fastener bit and the shiny sqaures. "Fruit punch" stickles have been used over the rest of the baubles.
Image cut out using nesties.
Sentiment is edged with memento grape jelly.
Papers and pink cardstock are inked with Tim Holtz distress ink "spun sugar" using foam inking tool thingy.
Pink card stock has been embossed using "ice crystals" folder.

Challenges it works for are:

Color Me Copic - Colouring techinque
Lili of the Valley - Sketch
One Stitch At A Time - Anything goes
