For the second time this week, it's looking a lot like Christmas here at the Stamp Happy blogarooni! I promise, after today it's back to heat, humidity and good ol' Summertime! But for today's Bellarific Friday challenge we're getting a jump start on Christmas!
There was no doubt in my mind, my Christmas card for today HAD to be Mavis Wearing Holly! She's just so incredibly cute in her Christmas finery! I paired her with some Echo Park "Everybody Loves Christmas" paper. I embossed the bright cardstock with the Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder, but used the reverse de-bossed side on my card front, spraying it liberally with some Perfect Pearls mist for shimmer. Mavis is colored on Bella's Bestest Cream cardstock and colored with Copics, and then I did some shading with some Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, as well as the blue-ish "halo" effect behind her!
For my card layout, I was again inspired by the CPS #228 sketch for this week, turning it sideways to fit my Mavis image.Hop on over to Blogabella to see all the Christmas creations from the Bella Babes, and the Sistahood!
