It's a Chichi Christmas

For both the sketch challenge and the color challenge this week I did Christmasy cards with my chichis :D

Supplies: Pia Puddingtop Chichibolie stamp from Stamping Bella; Fruit Cake Pattern Paper by Basic Grey; Juniper CS, Colonial White Ribbon Collection, and Pewter Brads by CTMH; Red Textured CS from Bazzil

Isn't she just darling! I made this card for the #49 sketch challenge on the Bella Forums. Jamie used an oval for the image but I don't have those cool nestabilities yet so I stuck with a regular ol' rectangle. I've been trying to shade a little more using my CTMH markers. I'm pretty sure I could do more if I actually splurged and got some watercolor paper but oh well, lol.


Supplies: Twinkle Fairy Chichibolie stamp from Stamping Bella; Cardstock, Silver Brads, Spot on Backgrounds, and Say it in Style stamp sets by CTMH; Stardust Gelly Roll Pen by Sakura

I was going to use Daisybella for this color challenge as I already have a few of her stamped out, but then I saw little twinkle fairy here and immediately 'midnight fairy' came to mind with these colors. As it turns out, the Christmas sentiment was an afterthought, but I thought the colors fit so well and this fairy is so versatile, that she could be sprinkling peace over the earth for Christmas ^_~ I loved coloring her in and I tried out my new stardust pen on her. I really like the results! Anyway, thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous Friday!!

Both cards are fabulous but I especially love the twinkle fairy one. I think she totally fits with the sentiment and I love how you colored her. You are truly talented. Thanks for sharing all your wonderful artwork.
