Baby's 1st Christmas

Today is the start of a new challenge at The Paper Shelter  and the theme is "For a child" so I have used this cute image called Christmas Stocking 

I used paper from Simple Stories Claus and Co collection for the background and coloured the image in to match. I cut around the image and attached it to the background with 3d foam and a small silver gem to look like a nail head. I added a few glittery silver stars from Doodlebug and two larger stars from Simple Stories. 
I used Harolds ABC alphabet stamps from Lawn Fawn to spell out Baby's First Christmas and finally added some star dust stickles to the fur and bobble of the hat. 

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour the image - 
Skin - Antique white, Blush, Soft Peach, Coral & Spice with Cocktail pink cheeks. 
Leaves - Forest green, Pine & Holly.
Bow & Hat - Poppy, Ruby, Cardinal red & Burgundy
Stocking - Lime Green & Pear Green. 
Shadow - Warm Grey 1 & 2 
Hair - Warm Grey 5 & 3
Fur - Powder Blue

I'm really pleased with how he has turned out & I would like to enter this card into the following challenges - 

Don't forget to say Hello when you are popping in. 
Thanks for reading,
