For this challenge I chose Hot Chocolate from Beary Dust Stamps. I could see the potential for layering the image and also that’s another Christmas card made J

I coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers keeping to a simple colour palette of blues and browns. I added 2 decoupage layers for the bear and then the bear’s head and hat. I added some lines with a fine nib to the biscuits, lots of glitter glue to the trim and pom-pom, some black gems to the eyes and puffy applique glue to cream running around the side of the cup. The image was cut out using a Nestabilities die.

The card front is covered with a snowflake paper from Crafter’s Companion, I used a corner rounder to trim the edges and a small ink pad to distress the edges of the card and image layer. The sentiment is a freebie from Bizzy Becs that you can download from here

Well as I woke up to our 1st thick frost of the season this morning and both myself and hubby are full of cold wrapping up warm with a nice mug of Hot Chocolate seems like a good idea to me J
