I got Bells!

Here is my Christmas card for the week.
This is Mrs. Claus from Kenny K. I colored her with E000, E00and E01 for her skin. For blush I added a bit of R20.  I then colored her gown / robe and hat with G14 all over and added G16, 17, 19 in for shading and shadows. The red is  is R24, 27, 29, 59. Her boots are Y21, 23 and I added enamel elements on the back of the boot, the sole of the boot, her necklace and the belt. Her hair is E13 all over with E15, 17, 18 shading.

I added polar white Flower Soft for the fur. I also wanted to enter her into the Color me Copic challenge for coloring makeup. I usually use the E000 technique for skin, but I don't always do a lot with the eyeshadow.  So I used the technique for that.

I first colored with G00 all over, then added darker G12 at the inside corner and blended out. I added V12 on the outside edge and blended in, and then took the E000 over all of the lid area to smooth it over. I like how it ended up.

Once I was done, I printed the sentiment out on my computer, and punched out some holly leaves using Martha Stewarts punch. For the berries I used hotfix crystals.

Challenges I am entering with this one.
