Fabulous Tellen's Place sponsors Smeared Ink!!

Hey All!!  Happy Almost Christmas!!

I'm so excited to be here today hopping with my fellow girls on the Smeared Ink Design Team with Tellen's Place as one of our amazing December Sponsors!!

I've had the privilege of using Diva Christmas Star as my image for this fun hop!!


I knew I wanted to veer off course from the regular holiday colors so I chose a palette of Turquoise, Orange and Pink as my jumping off point.  I colored Diva with my Copics, Prismacolor markers.  I then trimmed her out and using my Versamark Pen, colored her boots and gloves and some of her curls, coated with clear embossing powder and heat set her. 

I took my white gel pen and added small accents here and there and used my Quickie Glue Pen to coat the trim on her hat and dress with MS white, sparkly glitter.
I then set Diva aside to dry and worked on my card. 
Using scraps and bits, I layered, stitched and layered some more to create a fun and super textured card.  

I snagged one of my daughter's foam snowflake stickers from a huge bin we have in our playroom, coated it in white glue and then in MS turquoise glitter.  Once dry, I glued a Love, Elsie sticker in the center and set it aside to dry.  
I used a scrap of Ouchless Cardboard from Gauche Alchemy, coated in white craft ink and then heat set as a textured layer. 
I had a blast stitching the orange, polka dot ribbon with many snowflakes down the center!

Please continue to hop along to see the amazing and fun images that Tellen's Place has to offer and to also see the gorgeous creations that my fellow teamies have posted!!
