Simply Betty Christmas Emo Preview Number Two!!!

Hey All!!!

Welcome to another fabulous day number two of Simply Betty Emo Christmas Previews!!!  Today I had the pleasure of working with Bahumbug Christian and Prezzies for Lola!  Soooooo ridiculously adorable and versatile!!!

I had a blast with these ones!!

Here is my first preview of Christian:

I started with a base of PTI shimmery white cardstock (that stuff just screams holidays!) followed by another assortment of SU! DP.  I layered, stitched and ribboned my way around until I found just the right placement. 

Christian is colored with my Copics and Prismacolor markers.  His hat is trimmed with Martha Stewart white glitter and the edges are sponged with a mix of Brilliance Pearlescent Gold and Tim Holtz Vintage Photo inks.

As a last touch, I ran a strip of silver pearls along the bottom to add that extra sparkle.

Lola is cute and innocent as she can be in her cutie patootie plaid skirt and warm fuzzy camel colored cashmere sweater.  She is also colored with my Copics and Prismacolors. 

I pulled in a bit of non-traditional blue to make her pop.  I also used a base of PTI shimmery white and a great selection of SU! DP.  A bit of stitching and a two strips of blue fuzzy pom-poms and VOILA! 
I did the same sponging technique around the edges and added twinkly FA LA LA lettering at the top.

I do hope you have enjoyed and been inspired today with my creations!!  Please make sure to go and leave lots of love for my fellow DT sisters at SBS!!!

Crafty Hugs!!
