GOOD AFTERNOON FRIENDS! I’m back today with another holiday card featuring a digital stamp from Lili of the Valley called Christmas Bunnies Stocking. I’ve had this sweet image in my stash for awhile and decided that it was time to put it to good use.
I’ve been lacking in card design mojo lately so I decided to keep the layout simple and just let the coloring take center stage.
After printing the image, I colored the image with Copic markers (listed below). For the fur, I added a light layer of C1, blending it out with C0. I deepened the edges along the bunnies slightly with C2. After that, I used C5 to stipple a pattern in the fur and then added more stippling with a silver glitter gel pen to add texture and glimmer.
Once the coloring was completed, I selected a sentiment from the Christmas Sentiments stamp set by Penny Black. I stamped sentiment with Versafine ink, applied clear embossing powder, and heat embossed the sentiment. Next, I trimmed the card stock with the Zig Zag Rectangle die from Lawn Fawn and glued a piece of craft foam to the back.
For the card base, I blended the edges with Distress Inks in Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, and Salty Ocean. After assembling the card, I added a few clear jewels from Pretty Pink Posh (they’re hard to see in the photos).
Hope you found some inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you again soon!
