Christmas in July!!

Happy Bellariffic Friday - this weeks theme was to create a Christmas card; it's never too early to get them started!  For my card I inked up Bunny with a Present by Mo Manning from Stamping Bella

The image is stamped with versafine ink onto watercolour paper then coloured with distress markers.  On the bunny's fur I also used a silver gelato from Faber Castel to give him some shine.  I then shaded around the image with distress inks in tumbled glass and antique linen.  For the fur trim and pom pom on his hat I used liquid applique and glitter.  The cs is co'rdinations which is embossed with a snowflake embossing folder.

Don't forget to stop by Bloggabella to see the rest of the Christmas in July creations.  Next week is Sketch week.  Email your card to Emily by Thursday to be included on Bloggabella and you could win some bella bucks.

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day

I love the silver gelato you used for the bunny's fur! What a wonderful texture it gives. And I really love the way you've been coloring with watercolor markers. This is so pretty!
