Pixie Cottage Sketch Challenge #3 and Basic Grey Challenge #8~~ Glitz and Bling!!Hi All~~ Meet Bigsby!!! This little cutsey is a dream of illustrator, Karen Johnson who I met at the Stampin Scrappin Expo in Milwaukee. I was a busy gatherer that day--believe me and I loved every minute of it :D Check Karen's artwork out~~or doodles as she calls it :) Silly Bigsby is eating Santa's cookies and milk~~oh no!! Bigsby is a digi image from Karen's Doodles.
I colored him with my copics first and then added black flock and silver glitter to give him a soft, fuzzy and sparkly look. Used Flower soft for his hat~~polar white and russet red. The russet red wasn't red enough for me so I topped it with xmas red stickles. Also used stickles on the holly berries and leaves. After coloring cookies with copics I added a little diamond stickles on the chocolate chips to give sparkle of crystal sugars :D It is hard to see but I did cover milk in the glass with diamond glaze adhesive for a very shiny look and feel!! Used a dobber with SU old olive ink on the platter. Then cut out image and used foam tape to give it dimension on the BG Wassail collection dp which is bordered with MS holly leaf border punch~~so lovely!! That is layered over DCWV holiday metallic green cardstock which was CB with swiss dot folder. They were all wrapped in gold ribbon with embellies and sentiment and then placed on Burgundy textured cardstock.
Close up of embellishments~~ Used red christmas flower brad and I added the lime green stickles to the petals. Branches were punched from EK Success corner punch and sentiment came from a blogging friend (surprise in mail one day)Love it!!! Used MS tag punch and bordered tag with lime green stickles.
