Getting ready for...

...the party season.

Last weekend when I visited Pinnacle Crafts, Andy was 'playing' with the "Fabulous Festive Footwear" stamp set...and yes, I had to have a set but more to the point - I had to have the other set of stamps..."Fabulous Festive Fashion".

I really haven't had a great deal of time to play this week so I was quite please to see the grotty wet weather today because it gave me an excuse to play.
Using the Memento Tuxedo black ink pad, I stamped up a few images ready to colour.
I then sat down at my craft table with my Copics and...
 ...coloured the image in traditional Christmas red.
The edges were inked with 'antique linen'...
 ...and mounted on some textured red metallic paper.
I recently came across a stack of 'First Edition Paper' called "Christmas Village"...
 ...and used these papers to matt & layer with the metallic paper. Then added some ribbon, glitter domes and an Angel charm.
This is the completed card...
...I really loved colouring this image. Now I need to give some thought to trying a few different colour-ways..........................................................

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges: -

CHNC Christmas Extra Challenge - September: Anything goes
The Glory of Christmas - Challenge 15: Anything goes
ABC Christmas Challenge - R is for Recipe (3 papers, 2 Ribbons, 1 image)

Fabulous card! The stamp is a great size to see all the cute details. Lovely dress. Awesome mats and that little trinket is the perfect addition.
