Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #320 - Add Gems/Pearls

Middle of November - wow! Grateful we haven't seen the white stuff! A grateful heart is a happy heart and I'm happy to say it's time for another Tuesday Throwdown. Challenge #320 is all about adding gems or pearls. Our sponsor is Sweet n Sassy Stamps, a small family owned Christian company that offers digital and clear stamps, some dies and other supplies. For this challenge I am using their digital stamp Cocoa's Christmas Tree.

I colored the tree with Copic marker and since I don't have a lot of greens (I know some are going to find it hard to believe I don't have green everything), I used my Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol to add shading. Layered #907 pencil, blended and then layered #908 pencil and blended again. Photo at the end gives name and number for reference.

As to Cocoa, this cutie is colored with Copics cool grays and the ears are Copic pinks. Again, photo at the end for colors and names. Once the image was fussy cut, I attached gems galore. The star is glittered even though that doesn't count.

Mounted patterned paper to a white card blank, Created the wall hanging from 2 separate wooden embellishments, joined with Copic colored sting. Mounted the wall hanging and Cocoa to the card and I have to admit, I'm loving this one. I hope you do as well.

Parting thought:  Good listeners, like precious gems, are to be treasured.
