Cozy Cocoa ~ LDRS November Guest Designer

Hello Everyone!

Welcome back to the 2nd installment of my guest design work at
Little Darlings Design Team Inspirations Blog.

Little Darlings Design Team Inspirations

I made 2 cards using Cocoa by Saturated Canary rubber stamp, one colored with
Distress Ink pads and the other with Prismacolor black and grey pencils.
You can find the stamp in LDRS store here or other web suppliers around the world.
I had much fun coloring this beauty, she is absolutely adorable!

color vs monochromatic version.....

and some closeup looks of the colored images.....

I have distressed all paper edges with TH distressing tool, chalk ink, and DI
for the shabby look. I also embossed around the image with shabby white 
frantage and added some Crystal Effects for water drop effect.

Designer paper ~ Maja Design Vintage Winter, and A Gift for You collection.

Dies ~ Go Kreate, Memory Box, La La Land Craft, Tim Holtz, Spellbinders.

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
13mm Olivia white cluny lace, 8mm Rebecca ivory cluny lace,
white teeny tiny pom pom trim, 15mm white church window guipure lace,
Kort & Godt pale pink rolled paper roses, tiny vintage pink blooms,
natural hemp twine, 6mm pink and blue sequins, pink dewdrop,
pink crystal drop stem, 3mm and 6mm sticky tapes.

Congrats on your GDT spot. They are lucky to have you in their team, even if it's just for on month.
Both of your cards are gorgeous. I like the colorful and the black and white image. I think you coloured both of them perfectly and the design of both of your cards is awesome. Perfect Christmas cards.
