I even Love the box!

I promised a peek at the December Mary Maxim Copic class card and if you hadn't guessed it's another Mo Manning image released in rubber through Stamping Bella titled "I even love the box". And OMG I think he's just adorable. I actually put this image up for vote with a few of my regulars and it was a hands down winner.

Since this is for our Copic class you've probably guessed that I colored him with Copic markers but I also added lots of prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol to really make the shaded areas pop. And because this is for the Mary Maxim class, I stamped him with Memento Tuxedo black ink on Neenah Classic Crest cardstock. But I'm going to start off by saying that I cased a card by Linda Heavens to give me direction with the colors. Sorry, I was a little short on time this weekend and I had to get this done in a day to bring to my Monday class. My layout and paper are different though. I used Graphic 45 Christmas design paper with prism cardstock.

A simple fluffy bow helps to give the impression of a package along with a small tag accented with holly and berries just like the tag on the stamp. The holly was punched with a small EK Success punch and the sentiment tag was computer generated and then punched with the Stampin' Up Word punch.

Here's a closeup shot...

I used the Quickie Glue pen to apply the glitter on the Santa hat and pencils to shade around the image and as the ground.

Don't forget that this week's Bellarific Friday challenge is 1,2,3. That's 1 image, 2 design papers and 3 embellishments. Send a copy of your creation to Emily by Thursday evening for a chance to win some Bella bucks! And, if you will be in the Toronto area on Saturday - stop in to the Stamping Bella store to say hi and play with Lindabella, Danabella, Paulinabella, Paulabella, Ebrubella and myself! Yeah - it's my first trip to Bellaland and I am super psyched.

Thanks for stopping by and see ya back here later this week.
