Creating card art that mixes fantasy with reality is very high on my list of favorite things to do. I also enjoy adding classic, handmade coordinating elements to my projects. Sweet images like this beautifully designed Ebony make it very easy and SO MUCH FUN for me!
This pic shows a closer view of my Copic-filled image. Ebony decorated a bit for a Christmastime by adding some lights to her 'shroom so Santa could find her. He DID and left a nice pressie for her too!!! Yay!!! (I've used the QuicKutz 2008 Holly Jolly cookie cutter die set to include the string of lights and trees. An old Making Memories Charmed variety pack included the perfect metal gift to add here.)
I've layered Bo Bunny's Snowfall Collection "Snowfall Blizzard" and "Snowfall Wintertime" glittery patterned papers with Bazzill cardstock to form my easel card. A Michael's 3/8" sparkling aqua ribbon provides a lovely bow. A silver snowflake eyelet adorns each side of the horizontal border. A holly jolly sentiment from a Hot Off The Press Christmas Art set lies beside my image. I've used the QuicKutz Santa and Reindeer die cuts in black to appear as a silhouette in the background.
Here's a view of the front of my completed easel card showing my use of Ebony, as designed for Emerald Faeries Stamps, with a snowy Christmas theme . . .
This view of the base shows the continuation of my snowy Christmas theme. I've included a Stampin' Up! 2006 Alphabet Soup jingle all the way sentiment with Hot Off The Press Christmas Art small snowflakes stamped in the background using Adirondack Cloudy Blue dye ink.
