James Bear - Christmas Cracker

Morning Bloggers.

Today I have this card to share with you -

The stamp is Lili of the Valley - James Bear Christmas Cracker. He's been stamped with Memento Ink and coloured with promarkers. I've added some Sakura Clear Star to the stars on the cracker and to the ground beneath his feet. The hat has some Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Sparkle Glitter on the furry bits. I added a little Judikins Diamond Glaze to the nose and eyes.

I cut the image out with an oval nestie and inked around the edges with the Evergreen Bough and the Forest Moss Distress Inks using Cut & Dry Foam. I cut a mat out of gold card using a scalloped oval nestie.

The card was assembled as per the I love Promarkers Challenge this week.

The paper is from the Wild Rose Studio Christmas Milton Paper Pack. I cut some ponsettias out using the Spelbinders Layered Poinsettias dies. I inked them with Forest Moss Distress Ink and added a gem in the middle.

The sentiment is from Creative Expressions and has been inked with Forest Moss before mounting on to gold card.
