I colored them with Copics and then took my Blender pen and kept dabbing at the turtle which is what gives him the texture look. And since this stamp is what the second day of Christmas is about, I hand wrote my sentiment on the image. I used White Glitter Ritz on their hats.
The round diecut was sent to me by my dearest friend, Lillian, in white. I used my red Copic pen to color the edge for this card. That's the nice thing about sharing a die cut with someone. Make them white so they can be inked, colored or embossed to match the card! The diecut is by Marianne and the Christmas lights across the top are a stamp and matching die by Your Next Stamp. I applied Glossy Accents to each bulb for them to be smooth and shiny. I colored the base of each light with gray Copics and then applied clear Wink of Stella on each so that they'd have that metallic look. I glued a Santa hat brad (with the back cut off) in the center of my satin bow and applied White Glitter Ritz on the hat's pom pom and cuff. The multi-colored jewels are from my stash and I used the same colored jewels as I colored the light bulbs. The paper is from a paper pack by Bo Bunny.
