Circles and Christmas

Its a new challenge today over at I Love Promarkers and the theme is Circles - So many ways this can be interpreted, just as long as you use Promarkers or flexmarkers.

The image is a new stamp from Stamping Bella and is called Ramona shares her Hot Chocolate.
I used an embossing folder to create the circle background and mounted it on red. I used my Friskars cutter to cut a circle from red card and also around the stamped image - leaving a  space to cut around Ramona's hat.
I glued a section of Tilda ribbon to the base and to stop the cut edges from fraying - I used some Glue to seal the ends. I added a little Diamond stickles Glue on to Ramona's ear muff's, scarf and also the marshmallows. I also added some Diamond stickles to the ground to look like frost.
The Merry Christmas greeting is a sticker from Kaisercraft - I love the simplicity of it.

I used these promarkers & flexmarkers to colour the image -
Jacket & seat - Poppy, ruby & Cardinal red
Scarf & earmuffs -Blossom, Baby pink & cerise.
Trousers & hat - Gold, halloween & Bright orange.
Penguin, table & seat -Cool greys
Ground - Frozen lake
