Merry and Bright

My sweet friend Tammi sent me some surprise Hangler images in a card recently. I wasn't sure I was up to the challenge on coloring them. The cards I've seen with this style of stamp are created by such great colorers (is that a word?), I thought I'd ruin the poor images she sent! But they are so cute, they were calling to me today when I had time to create. I should have been wrapping gifts, I totally pulled it out instead of the wrapping paper. I also pulled out a fab gift Kim gave me during a LSS round that had sketches to find a layout. As perfect as this is, I found one of Tammi's she'd listed in the book, so I went with that layout. Than I went digging thru my stash of papers. I just love this retired set of Christmas papers from TAC, the sentiment is a stamp set they had last year at Christmas time too. Than I sat down to color her in with gamsol and primsacolored pencils. I think she turned out super cute! Now I just know I'm gonna have to buy some of my own! Dang, they're too cute! I tried a new product on the wings too, that shimmerz stuff, I used silver bells color on her wings. The card base is my first sheet of cardstock from PTI. This is the poppy color. Very nice cardstock! I was impressed with how sturdy it was! The button brad was colored over with a palette ink pad, followed up with embossing powder, and heat set to match her outfit better. I used different colors of stickles on the hearts. I can see Kim cutting out the basket and popping it out!
