Merry and BRIGHT!!!

Morning, sorry it's been a while since my last post. I have been busy making my cards and although I started them, I didn't quite get around to finishing them. Or at the very least, photographing them. So here I am...

I decided it was time to use one of my new Lili of the Valley Christmas stamps, as I have been looking at it a while and haven't stamped with it. I didn't want to go with the traditional green and red or white and black Christmas card and eventually decided on red and yellow... strange??? Yeah, I know but I think it actually works. I think it looks a bit like a flattened christmas cracker??? Let me know what YOU think?

Don't you just love this bear??? I coloured him with ProMarkers: Cocoa, Cinnamon and Sandstone (and then went over it with a brown sharpened pencil to pick out areas of his fur), Cardinal Red, Berry Red and Yellow. I then picked out the star and the tinsel with Moon Dust Stickles and a white highlighter pen (Sakura Gelly Roll).

I then added some non-traditional background paper from My Minds Eye (Bright Dots Stack), some red and yellow cardstock which I border punched with the Martha Stewart Stars punch, added some ribbon and a shiny red button.

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs, Fae xxx
