Bella Loves Christmas

Mmmm, not exactly a snappy title tonight but, hey, it is what it is.  Long day at work today and I've spent this evening making Halloween party invitations for our friends' children.  They bought some foam die cut ghosts and had the brilliant idea of using them as invitations - but please could Aunty Peri write them?  So I've done my task and they've been despatched to three excited kiddies.

On to my post for this evening.  This is for this week's Scrap-Creations challenge, where the theme is 'Christmas'.

Image: Mo's Digital Pencil, 'Bella Loves Christmas'

Papers: Basic Grey, from last year's stash!

Wordart: Create with TLC

I did some digital paper piecing this this one.  I brought Bella into Paint.net and then added a digital paper for her dress.  Once I'd printed her, I went in with lots of Prisma shading to define the pleats and folds.  I'm quite pleased with how she turned out, actually - all those folds! Aaarrgh!  All other details were coloured with my Copics (I'm just waiting for some new ones to arrive!!!) and, of course, as it's Christmas, I added plenty of glitter here and there.

So, bed time now.  One more day at work then I'm off for a few days of serious crafting - can't wait!  Mind you, my poor boss isn't too happy about being 'abandoned' for a few days!  Bless!

Happy crafting.
