Happy Holidays

Hi Everyone!  It’s hard to believe it is already December.  Christmas will be here before we know it!  For my post today, I thought I would pull out another one of the Christmas images from Stampavie.  This image is called Gifts for You and is from Penny Johnson.

I used some patterned papers from Echo Park’s Season’s Greetings line and some crocheted lace from May Arts.  I added some buttons and baker’s twine along with a little Christmas tree charm.

I used a sentiment from Tina Wenke’s Holiday Wishes sentiment set.  I stamped the image and sentiment on copic x-press it cardstock with tuxedo black memento ink.  Then, I colored the image with these copic markers: R24, R27, R46, R89, Y35, E79, E31, E33, E35, E37, E29, E000, E00, E11, E13, R00, R02, BG10, BG11, BG13, W1, W3, YG93, YG95, YG97, E51, E53, colorless blender.   After coloring my image, I sponged some antique linen and tea dye distress inks around the edges of my image.

Then, I added some white fun flock to Santa’s cap and the cuffs of his coat using a Sakura Glue Pen.  I used a gelly roll pen (from Sakura) to add a little sparkle to the stars and snowflakes.  Then, I adhered my image with foam adhesive.

Have a wonderful week!
