One of my favorite Sunshine Designs stamps is the Christmas Harliquin Stocking stamp. When I saw Julee's Mojo Monday layout sketch for this week on her blog, POETIC ARTISTRY, I decided to use this stamp and a lot of bling for this card.
The background paper is actually a velvet paper and raspberry colored. I added some tiny bells on the harliquin cuff at the top of the stocking. In front of the sentiment, as well as the "nail" holding up the stocking, I used amber colored crystals. I colored the stocking with Tombow markers and added stickles for sparkle.
This is Julee's layout sketch for this week:
I think I'll go back to using my prismacolor pencils to color. I wasn't too thrilled with my application of Tombows on this particular image, but I do enjoy participating in Julee's layout challenges each week.
Until next time...
