Now, stop over at 
and check out what 
all my new fellow Design Team members 
have created 
to help get your crafty mojo flowing!

Here is my card:

STAMPS: Digital Image (Whimsy Stamps); Digital Sentiment (Scribble & Scrap Shop).
PAPER: White cardstock; DP - Park Bench (Fancy Pants Designs).
INK: Copics: Skin white; Egg Shell; Prussian Blue; Coral Sea; Holiday Blue; Petroleum Blue; Light Suntan; Sand; Caribe Cocoa; Cadmium Yellow; Cool Gray 1 & 5; Special Black.
EXTRAS: Label die (Taylored Expressions); Prima flowers; brad; dark blue gems; crystal Stickles.

This is my first time doing a significant amount of coloring on a digital stamp.  I have to confess my Copics stash is slightly limited so it was a little challenging doing some shading.  And, towards the end I discovered my light gray pen dried up!  

At any rate, I like the outcome. However, note to self: Make sure you have the patterned paper all chosen before coloring!  I had to go with non-traditional Christmas colors 
in order to match up with my image. 

Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT cards, then get creative using this week's photo then link up your projects at {PIN}spirational Challenges.

Holiday Blessings!

This is such a cute image and I think you did a great job coloring. Looks like your Copic collection is bigger than mine (I'm just starting out with them and have only three!) I also like the non-traditional colors...I think as crafters we get red/green burnout this time of year! Welcome to the DT!

HUGE congrats on the new team! WOOOHOOO!
And yep, I get red/green burnout too! The non-traditional colours are a perfect balance for the traditional image :)
