I really like the look of Non Traditional colours on Christmas cards, and as my Christmas list is quite long, I thought I would take this opportunity to add to my Christmas card stash. The Digi Bells are having a DT Call and the theme is ‘Stars and Stripes’ I’ve used the very lovely Star of Bethlehem from Belles and Whistles and combined it with some pretty SU Baja Breeze DSP

This is what I came up with:

My image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Copic Express card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 hair: E47, E44, E43, E40 clothes: BG72, BG11, BG10, BG0000, BG90, BG93, BG96, W00 ground: W5, W3, W1, W00  I have added some sparkle to the star with Stickles and a pattern to the little girls dress with my Sharpie White Paint Marker

I’m sure I will be sharing many more Christmas cards over the coming months so I have  enough for my Christmas needs. I might just make this one in another colour as I am quite pleased with how it turned out, we’ll see
