Today is the new digi release at Whimsy Stamps and all I can say is wow... there's some cute digis this month, including this one which is Stamp Art Design's Hollybelle. Make sure you head over to the Whimsy Inspiration Blog because there's a Blog Hop going on and you don't want to miss out.
I used a Marianne Creatable die cut to make the shape of this scalloped easel card and coloured the image with Copics. I tried to get a little texture in the fur so took a few drops of Copic Colourless Blender and dabbed a towel into it and then pressed down so it would lift a little colour off. I did this after colouring the fur and before colouring anything else. I like the technique and won't be quite so timid with it next time but I didn't want to ruin the image so I dabbed it down for only a couple seconds. I added a little glamour dust to give the wings some sparkle and then added some gold Stickles to the edges. The sentiment is from Whimsy's Winter Letter Seals, the paper is Memory Box Co and the brad is from the stash.
