More Bells

Hi everyone! I had a bit of time yesterday afternoon so I made another quick card for this week's Merry Monday challenge to use bells. The Tim Holtz die I used on my first card had two kinds of bells so I had two sets of each from my cuts. I decided to make a card using the two jingle bells I had cut since some of the Design Team members had gone with jingle bells. Here's my card:

Jolly Bells
Supplies: Paper - Anchor Paper silver (for card base), BoBunny Tis the Season 6x6 (snowflake patterned), 
Tim Holtz Metallic Kraft Stockthe Paper Studio glitter , scrap of black
Dies - Tim Holtz Christmas Bells 658765 (retired), MFT Die-Namics Blueprints 20 (stitched & scalloped rectangles)
Ribbon - Tim Holtz Tinsel twine
Stamps - Hero Arts CL620 JollyCL354 Let the Angels Sing (retired)
Ink - Black Soot Distress ink, Ranger Archival Garden Patina by Wendy Vecchi
Other - foam tape, Peacock Feathers Distress Marker, Copic Markers C1 & C3 for shading

I had some turquoise stuff out from last week's Merry Monday so decided to use them. The Garden Patina ink I used to stamp the JOLLY looked a bit light so I outlined it with a Distress Marker and shaded around it with the Copics. That ended up being all my "coloring" for Day 20 of Kathy's 30 Day Coloring Challenge! I went to chorus rehearsal after finishing this card and by the time I got home, I wasn't in the mood to do any more coloring. I did a little better today, coloring a quartet of Christmas stockings for a future Christmas card.

That's it for today - thanks for stopping! Beautiful sunny day here so I'm out to enjoy it!!
