Christmas Joy

Here is a card I made during Hip Hop Thursday. I used a stamp from Christmas Joy, from Unity. I colored the image with Koh-i-noor pencils, and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. Next, I sponged the background with Bashful Blue and Ballet Blue inks.

It looks plain to me, so I may add some ribbon or gems, just haven't decided where yet.

Have a stampalicious day!

I love your coloring of this! You do a great job with your Koh-i-Noor pencils. The sponging of the two blues is very nicely done and highlight the image perfectly.

You really have colored this excellently! Even your sponging is perfect done. What type of sponge do you use?
