Christmas Time!

Good morning! It is another fun challenge at Stamptacular Sunday! It's

“Christmas Time!”

For this week's challenge you will create a Christmas Card!  Simple as that!  No TWISTS, No special DEMANDS and No other REQUIREMENTS…just has to be Christmas!  Oh…and don’t forget to STAMP!  After all…we don’t call this the STAMPtacular Sunday Challenge for nothing!      
You will have from now until midnight (EST) December 22nd, 2012 to complete this challenge and post a DIRECT LINK to your submission into our InLinkz in order to be entered into the drawing for this week's fabulous prize donated by Marker Pro with a $15 gift certificate and Bugaboo with the winner's choice of 7 digital images!
For my card I have used the fabulous 'WinterFairy Talva! by Mo Manning! I love this image and can't seem to get enough of her for my Christmas cards or aqua!

I have used Copics to color her and Wild Orchid Craft flowers. I painted the metal corner with picket fence and Glossy Accents. I distresses around the image with Tumbled Glass and I had a few smudges that I wanted to hide, so I stamped around my image with a snowflake stamp with Versa Mark Ink and used some white embossing powder. I really like how it turned out! Here's a close-up to see the embossing a little better! It is subtle but a nice touch.
I also added glitter to her wings and flowers and flocking powder to her leg warmers and pom poms!

I hope you like this rendition of "Talva"! Don't forget to check out what the other talented ladies have created over on the Stamptacular Blog and have a fabulous Sunday!
