My co-worker, Christal, is a big fan of my cards and so I knew I had to make a special one for her this year. When I saw the new Uptown girl "Eve under the mistletoe" I knew this was the image to use. I think I created a wonderful likeness of Christal with this Bella image. Not only is Eve's haircut similar to Christals but the dress and especially the shoes are SO Christal - she LOVES shoes!
I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it with copics. The paper is some retired SU Christmas paper. Now Christal is always encouraging me to try and match her gorgeous skin tone and I gave it my best shot on this card. I used E33 for her skin and N8 and 9 for her hair. I paper pieced her cute little dress and the belt has a couple of coats of black glaze pen with a coat of silver Atyou Spica on the buckle. I added some liquid applique with glitter on it to the dress trim and red stickles on her shoes and bracelets. I adore ghost snowflakes (so much so that I hate to use them-just like to look at them!) but this card had to have one. I added another white snowflake with a silver donut and red bonbon on top to finish it off. The sentiment is from Holly Girl and the banner is the First Place Award Ribbon. This card started off as the sketch for December's SFYTT but ended up being a very "loose" interpretation :)
I'm happy to say Christal loved her card - so much so that she asked me to take a photo of her with her card to show you!
