This image is technically a Christmas image but since I haven't shared it yet, we're going to call it a "Ring out the old and ring in the new" New Year card!
This is Jingle Chickadee from Impression Obsession and while I love this image, I had a little trouble coloring it and think I would choose to just leave it alone next time. There is so much shading and detail on the stamp itself that the colors sort of drown out the image a bit. But anyhow, color it I did. I tried going for a rusty look on the bell - not sure I achieved it but it was a good effort. The bow atop the bell was not colored at all - instead I added a piece of ribbon over that area to add some dimension to the image. I added a little machine stitching to the background to finish up the card. The only thing that is missing is a sentiment which I think I will add to the lower left corner of the image panel when I send this one out. Probably next year. Or maybe as a thank you for this year's Christmas goodies.
I hope you all have a wonderful - and safe - New Year's Eve and Day!
