Christmas Tug of War with Stamping Bella

Hi Friends! 
I am so, so, so, excited and very proud to announce that I have joined the Stamping Bella Design Team. It's truly an honour to be in such amazing company, and also to be the first guy or "Fella" to join the Bella's. 
For my first project as part of the Stamping Bella design team I created a card for the new challenge up this week. The Challenge was to use the stamp set, "Christmas Tug of War". The stamp and die bundle will be 20% off all sure to grab this amazing deal before its gone. Trust me when I say this was an extremely fun image to be able to colour.
I used my Copic markers to colour this super sweet image, then applied some Copic blending solution with a nubby rag to achieve the texture. If you are interested in the colours I used, they are listed below.

Cat - YR27, YR24, Y23, R20
Dog - T8, T6, T4, T2, R20
Gift - R59, R37, R35, R32
Ribbon - G29, YG67,YG63, YG61

I had a lot of fun creating this card. I really enjoy playing around with my card layouts, experimenting with my dies and playing with pattern paper. Also be sure to check out the Stamping Bella blog to see what the other DT members created with this stamp set.

See you tomorrow with TWO sneak peaks of the December Stamping Bella release!

Until next time - Stephen a.k.a. (steveafella)
