Exciting news - Loves Rubberstamps

Hello Friends!

I have some very exciting news to share with you today!!!  Are you ready?

Well, I have been selected to be the Guest Designer at Loves Rubberstamps for the month of December.  Whooo Hoooo!!!!!  This is my first rodeo and I am very excited about the opportunity I have been given.  Make sure you stop by each Tuesday to check out the challenges and play along.

Today, I am sharing one of my favorite images, Christmas Eve Edwin by Magnolia.  I can't wait to ink it up each year.  I used MME paper as the backgrounds.  The image is colored with copics on cryogen paper and embellished with perfect pearls.  I used Tim  Holtz distress ink around the edges to give it a colder feel.   The brad (top right hand corner) is by Spare Part embellishments and some extra trim along the side.  I used Perfect Pearls to add some snow over the image and give some dimension.

Copics used:
Pants:  E41, E41, E43, E44
Shirt, Hat & Gloves:  BG0000, BG72, BG75, BG78
Package:  E30 E31, E35
Basket:  W1, W3, W5
Apples:  R24, R27, R89
Shoes:  E21, E25, E27, E29
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, E13, R20

The inside sentiment is by Stampers Anonymous.  I like how bold and solid it is.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed your visit.  Be sure to check out Loves Rubberstamps each Tuesday for a new challenge.
Blessings until next time...
