Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop

Welcome to the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop. If you didn't start at the beginning you might want to go here to find your way from the beginning. If you came from Patricia's blog you came from the right place.  Instead of using a Tilda this month I decided to use the Christmas bell and poinsettias. I really like poinsettias. All the stamps were purchase here. They are so festive. Here is my card:


Everything is colored with copics except for around the bell prisma color pencils were used to make a shadow. The bow is popped with foam tape as is the one poinsettia in the lower corner. The bow is painted with stickles and diamond glaze. I didn't want a thick layer so I just painted it to make it look shiny. The ribbon is just painted with diamond glaze and no stickles. There are stickles on the bottom scallop. The whole bell is painted with angel wing shimmerz. A bell ought to be shiny. Silver stickles are on the swirls and red stickles on the berries. Gold stickles are in the center of the poinsettias and crystal stickles on the red bracts.  The red pearls on the upper corner are from Queen and Company. The dp is from bo bunny. You can see the gray cardstock is  metallic to go along with the silver bell. The bow was attached with a couple of glue dots.As I was taking the picture of this card I thought this bell would look really neat as a tent card with the bell swinging in the window. Maybe another time.
Copics used:
Y06, Y 17
G28, G07, YG06
W1,W3, W5, BG10
R29, R27, R24, R22, R46
Next you're off to see Roseanne's blog.
Enjoy!!!
