Baby's First Christmas

Hello and happy Monday! Here is a card you may have gotten a peek at if you were at the Gina K release party last week. I used two of the new stamps sets from this month, First Christmas and Vintage Borders.

I started by coloring the main part of the bear using E59 Copic marker.

Added E57.

Added E35.

Added E53.

Added E51.

For the face, belly and feet, which I wanted lighter, I started with E33.

Added E31.

Used my blender pen.

For the hat and scarf, I used R29.

Added R24.

Used my blender pen to soften the highlights. Then I cut out the image.

To created the background, I sponged Vivid Tuscan Tan ink on a piece of Pure Luxury Ivory.

Sponged Vivid Coffee Bean.

Stamped the music border from Vintage Borders, using Vivid Brick ink.

I cut another piece of Pure Luxury Ivory with an oval Nestabiltities die and sponged more Tuscan Tan and Coffee Bean.

I added some Doodlebug Glitter to the hat and used my Startdust Glitter pen to add some sparkle to the scarf. Layers are Pure Luxury Cranberry Tart, Chocolate Kiss and the cardbase is the new Tan Leather.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Oh, what a precious card! I love the stamped background! And the colors you created are so soft! Love this bear stamp!

Lena said...

wow you are so talented! I was wondering what kind of sponges those are? Ive been using makeup sponges but it leaves streaks . Not nearly as smooth and pretty as yours.

Helena said...

This is wonderful! Thanks so much for the how-to. I always forget to use inks and pads on my papers. I need reminding from time to time =)
