Christmas Holly Fairy


This is the gorgeous Christmas Holly Fairy  from Mo's Digital Pencil and I think was the first Mo Image I ever purchased, it was a must have for me because of my daughter Holly ( not a Christmas baby, by the way).  This is another one I have to colour up each year, and this time I've tried to make my own snow globe with a piece of wood effect embossed Kraft card and then adding an acetate circle over the top with some glamour dust sprinkled in before sealing the edges.  I then added some gold stickle round the edge to mask the glue.
You can see the glitter moves around by the pics above and below.  I've also added lots of shabby green Frantage for some further aging.
The December panel is an embossing folder which I then brushed over with some Vintage Paper distress ink to highlight the lettering. The foliage is some ribbon that I bought years ago, and the poinsettia is a Spellbinders die. 
I think I've made about 35 Xmas cards now, only another 50 to go!  I've got a few 'batch made' Xmas cards to share with you soon!  I've got to speed up!
