Together At Christmas

I’ve got another Christmas card to share with you, this one is made with a sweet Lili of the Valley image called Together At Christmas.  I coloured with my Prisma pencils as usual and roughly/mostly followed the sketch at Sketch Saturday for the LO.  The holly, berries and the flames have a little stickles on them, the stockings have little dots of Liquid Pearls and the star and bauble have a little bit of Glossy Accents.

The large backing paper is from Stamping Up, the smaller green piece is DCWV and both came from the scrap drawer; all the papers and white card were edged with TH Festive Berries ink.  The red card is Bazzil and the snowflake was cut with DCWV glittered paper with a Sizzix die.

The sentiment is also from Stampin’ Up and I embossed it in Cherry Twinkle EP from Judikins.  The main image was attached with foam tape to give a bit of dimension, and that’s a Martha Stewart punch that I edged the red Bazzil with.  Here’s a close up of the colouring….

  1. Aaaaah, gorgeous card Brenda! A great design that shows off the lovely image – which is beautifully coloured and (dare I say it) reminds me a bit of you and Andrew :)

    Hugs, Di xx (Progress is slow but I guess I ain’t gonna wake up and find someone flicked a switch and the old back is 100% right away huh)

  2. You did an amazing job with your pencils Brenda, the image looks beautiful! I love how you got all the texture in the hair and the wonderful shadows and highlights. Well done!
    Cheers,
    Beccy

  3. What an amazing colouring job on this wonderful image! Great papers used with this and the big snowflake sets the scene for the impending frosty weather! Good thing they are inside!

  4. Awww . . . this is such a sweet image! Love the bit of sparkle on the holly leaves. I have that same snowflake die, but can never get it to cut out right. Now I’m envious. :) Thanks for playing with CSAYL.
