Christmas Collage ft. Mama Elephant

I am super excited to share my first entry to Ksenija's Chasing Mojo Challenge.

 
I was inspired by Margarita's adorable card. (view it on her blog here) I loved her idea of framing cute critters (it's brilliant and oh-so-fun!) and the soft look of the blended backgrounds. Also CASEd her black sentiment and her use of small embellishments.

The bunnies are from Mama Elephant's Pix's Happy Holiday set, while the frames are from Winnie & Walter's Framed with Evelin T Designs set. I colored all the images with Copic Sketch marker, and all the colors I've used are listed below:
Top Left Bunny: BG10, BG15, BG09 (scarf) RV09, RV19 (Coat)
Top Right Bunny: R27, R38, E09 (bag) YG03, G07 (clothes) Y11, Y13, Y15 (ribbon)
Bottom Left Bunny: Y02, Y21 (banner) RV11 (dress) BG10 (wings)
Bottom Right Bunny: V04, V06, V09 (dress) E33, E15 (antlers)
All bunnies used C1 and C3 for shading
Square Frame: E33, E15, E37
Retangular Frame: E44, E29, E49


Then I masked each frame and image one by one and sponged some distress ink to create the soft background. (Yellow: Scattered Straw. Pink: Spun Sugar. Blue: Tumbled Glass. Green: Shabby Shutters.)


Next I added blush to my bunnies by dabbing on some pigment ink with a Q-tip. I think it really makes a difference!


To finish off the card, I applied some glossy accent and adhered some sequins to embellish the card. I really enjoy mixing stamps from different stamps sets and companies, and had a lot of fun creating this card. I hope you have enjoyed looking at it, too! Have a wonderful day!
