I am at last making a start on my Christmas cards. This very sweet little teddy is a retired Elzybells stamp. The image was stamped onto 140lb Watercolor paper with Versafine Onyx black ink and watercolored with Lyra and Faber-Castell watercolor pencils and a small round paintbrush. I lightly chalked around the image with Kaisercraft blue chalk and added some brown/grey chalk along the bottom of the image.
I added some Glossy Accents to the red baubles (not that you can really see it) and some Gold FlowerSoft using Aleen's tacky glue to the tinsel on the tree.
The green satin ribbon was attached in 2 separate elements and the bow itself was made with my Bow Easy. I found some gold jingley bells when I was tidying up my Craft Room so added one with some gold cord just for a bit of fun as the card jingles when you shake it. I added Fray Stop to the ribbon and cord ends to stop them from fraying.
I could have gone crazy with lots of embellies but wanted to hold back on them because I might give this card to my husband as he is the sort of guy who doesn't mind cute images like teddy bears and a bit of glitter or sparkle - but obviously I wouldn't tizz a card up too much for him.
ETA: I decided to add some sparkly stars around the image - it just looked a bit naked - and I like it much better now.
