Wild Rose Studio 'Bella On Bauble'

Did you know that there are only 339 days left to Christmas!! ;-) 

OK it is AGES away, BUT as you know time flies and it WILL be here before you know it. If you join in with the Christmas Challenges by the time it arrives you will be ready and not rushing out to the store to buy your cards! ugh

For the next 2 weeks the the lovely Carissa is the hostess on the ABC Christmas Challenge  and the theme is 

I used this super cute Bella On Bauble from the Wild Rose Studio

I coloured the image with copies and after spending ages blending the bauble decided it needed some sparkle, so I smothered it in gold glitter, leaving the little stars white so I could add Prisma glitter on them. 

I stamped his 'hand' again and popped it up with silicone adhesive so that the gold string could pass underneath. I stitched the edges with gold thread, it doesn't really show up that well on the photo's but it does look quite sparkly IRL.

ETA: I just popped over to Samantha's blog as saw that she has posted a photo of her crochet so I thought I would show you mine too. I am not an expert like Samantha, these are my first efforts
