Club La-La Land Marci with Sled and Bears for the Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog #33 on the 1st of April, 2021

For my third challenge with Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and as I have been collecting a whole bunch of Christmas stamps and dies from La-La Land Crafts, I decided to use the November 2020 Club La-La Land Crafts Kit. I have used both the stamp sets and some of the dies!

Here is my card:

Anyway, I have stamped Marci with Sled and the three bear images from the November 2020 Club LLLC Kit using Black Tuxedo Memento ink on to X-Press It Blending Card.
Then I have coloured with the following Copics markers:
  • skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20, R30
  • lips - R20, R22
  • hair - E21, E23, E25, E29
  • grey - C0, C1, C3
  • reds - R32, R35, R37, R39
  • blues - B12, B14, B16, B18
  • pompoms on hats - Twinkle Stickles
  • sled - E31, E33, E35, E37
  • outline - BG000/B000 (I have accidentally refilled my BG000 with B000!) 
I fussy cut out the images and then using my die cutting machine cut out the Fence on a Hill and the Winter Houses in some card stock from my stash. I adhered everything to my slimline card from Envelope Solutions.

I have taken inspiration for the colouring from La-La Land Crafts Blog.

Here is a close-up of the colouring of the images:

As I couldn't fit everything on the slimline card, I added one of the bears and the sentiment to the inside of the card:
