This Little Darling is called "Decorating the Tree". This stamp is a little taste of the gorgeous LD Christmas stamps that will be released soon. She's just adorable trying to get that star on the top of that tree! I love how she's pulling the tree over just enough to attach it. I hope it doesn't fall in her!!! Yikes!
I paired this image with dp's from Pink Paislee's 'Father Christmas' pad from last year. I still love these papers and I'm thrilled that I have a second paper pad to dig into this year :-) I often purchase my faves in pairs...hehehe. I also threw in a sheet from the Memory Box 'Spiceberry' pad from last year. The lace and pleated ribbon are from my stash. The corner plates and snowflakes were a gift from my sweet friend, Mindy. The corner plates were silver, but I coated them with a dark brown Copic marker to give them a bit of age. I have no idea which color I grabbed though...sorry! The bingo card sentiment is from Jenni Bowlin. I added diamond Stickles to the edges of the image and all over the Christmas tree. The whole card got a bit of aging by rubbing the edges with Ranger walnut stain.
I colored the image with a combo of Copic markers and watercolor with DI's. It was sooooooo much fun getting back to painting again. I really missed it! Here are the details of the colors that I used:
Copics: E000, 00, 02, 11, 13, 41, 42, 43, 50, Y11, 21, YR23
DI's: shabby shutters, peeled paint, forest moss, antique linen, walnut stain, vintage photo, black soot, fired brick
