Christmas Soldiers

If you're looking for my Cardmaker Magazine Blog Hop post click here.

     It's Bellarific Friday on Saturday!  hee hee  Since we had the Blog Hop yesterday with Cardmaker Magazine, we bumped our Friday posting to Saturday.
     Last weeks theme was Christmas in July.  I pulled out my Christmas Soldiers set by Christine Grove and colored up these party animals. It's kind of hard to tell in the photo but I raised the top and bottom DP panels up on foam so the image is recessed between.

Copics Used:
skin E000, E00, E11
uniforms R35, R37, R39, N3, N5, N7, YR24, C00, C2

Next weeks challenge is this sketch.

To play along just use a Stamping Bella image (make sure you use something that's currently in the store stock) and the theme requirements.  Get your project photographed and emailed to Em at (emily at stampingbella dot com) with Bellarific Friday challenge and the date of the challenge in the subject line by Thursday evening.  Em offers a $25.00 Bella Bucks prize to one lucky winner every month.
     You can find all the wonderful DT creations as well as those who participated in the sketch challenge over at Blogabella.
     Be blessed!
