SILVER BELLS...

Silver Bells...it's Christmas time in the city - I think that the way the song goes anyway!  So today it's silver bells for Merry Monday's "bells" challenge.


A friend gave me these PTI bells ages ago, but they were cut from patterned paper - so I smooshed them with Versamark and embossed with HA silver.  The bow is from the same set and also smooshed, but embossed with Stampendous aged aqua metallic.  Cut the pine boughs from Neenah white gold metallic cs and then daubed with tumbled glass distress ink.  The watercolor background was more smooshing with tumbled glass ink.  Put it all together with Neenah metallic silver cs for the mat and sentiment and added the sequins here and there.  Done and dusted!

Thanks for visiting today and your comments make me so pleased.

  1. Very nice Betty, really love the colour, sentiment in fact the whole mood of the card. As soon as I read your heading 'Silver Bells' I started to sing the song and then smiled when I read you had referred to it...
