Fancy Sunbonnet Winter Snowball

This image should look familiar!  At least you should.  LOL  It's the same image that I used in my last post but with a minor change - instead of her holding a snowball, this time she's holding a Christmas bauble.  To do this, all you have to do is draw a square and a curved line to create the hook and top part of the bauble.  Faye had accidentally colored her snowball as such and this was how we fixed it.  LOL  

The image I used was Fancy Sunbonnet Winter Snowball from Little Miss Muffet Stamps which was stamped and colored in my travel journal.  This time I colored the image with Marvy Le Plume markers.  Most of the colors were easy to blend, surprisingly, but the red took some extra ink to blend from the darkest to the lightest.  And as a result, the red bled through the paper and showed up on the other side.  I've painted it with Gesso and will try to cover it up with another image so we'll see how that works out.

Fancy Sunbonnet Winter Snowball

It's never too early to start on those Christmas cards and this one was created for the class I taught at Scrapping Goodtime back in July.  The stamp I used is Fancy Sunbonnet Winter Snowball rubber stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and I also used the Park Glen Metal Door and Screen Door Refills on this project.  On the door I used a jingle bell looking wreath that was on a pin.  I'm not sure what it was called but it looked perfect for the door so I had to use it.  :D  The pin part was tucked under the image layer but it also helps to keep it in place.

The class was focused on the snowball texture and general blending techniques and there was a great group of gals there to share it with.  Thank you to Scrapping Goodtime and for everyone there!  :D
