The tree at Rockefeller Plaza has nothing on this one...

These are Stamping Bella's Christmas PEEP's and LOOK at the size of that tree!

When I did this one last year I paper pieced it but this time I decided to colour it and pulled out some Cosmo Cricket paper as my inspiration. I started by stamping on bella's BESTEST paper with black memento ink and used the following copic markers:

E000, 21, 11, 42, 44, 23, 25, 27
G12, YG41, 45, 67, 99, Y15, YR14, B32, 34, 37
RV23, 34, 17, R85, 89, C0, 3

I then added some turquoise pencil crayon to my tree and blended it out with Gamsol because I wanted to alter the colour slightly to better match my paper. I shaded around the tree with yellow pencils, then sponged some yellow around the edges while keeping my die in place and the two just blend together making it look like I coloured on yellow paper! Once I had the card all put together I added a nice thick glob of Ranger glossy accents to the ornaments to give them dimension. It is crazy, but I love doing that!

Now for some exciting news...Paula is having a birthday you have two things to do...first send her some love because she is getting older! (okay...that is NOT a requirement!!!!) And along in her challenge to win yourself some of her fav images in bella rubber.

Here is what you gotta do:
  • play in this weeks challenge over at Stamping Bella and your name will be entered into the draw
  • play again in next week's challenge and your name will get entered again!
How cool is that...leave it up to Paula to do something so fun and creative. If you want all the details you can read it on this post.

And if you wanna get working on this weeks challenge immediately, here is the sketch...a WINNER!

Now go get crafty, that's an order!
