Sparkles #90 - Christmas stockings

Hi! It's hard to believe it is July already. Where did the first half of the year go? The beginning of the month means a new Christmas challenge at Sparkles Christmas and the theme is Christmas stockings.

I am on a coloring kick lately, so I was looking around for an image that I could color. So I did a search and found this really cute image from Dearie Dolls. It is a free digi and I immediately printed it out on white cardstock to start coloring. I need lots more practice with colored pencils but I love all the colors in this. Once I had colored everything, I used a fantastix coloring tool and baby oil to blend the pencil color a bit. To finish, I die cut the image and stamped the sentiment at the bottom. Then I adhered it to the front of a gray top folding A2 card.

Supplies:
Stamps: Dearie Dolls - Christmas stocking; Lawn fawn - Merry messages
Dies: Avery Elle - Double pierced rectangles
Inks: Prismacolor pencils; MFT - Black licorice
