Treasure Times Stamps Christmas Blog Hop Party!

Hi welcome to the Treasured Times Rubber Stamps "Christmas Release Blog Hop". The TT design team has created some amazing projects to inspire you. We hope you will follow along for your chance of some amazing prizes!

My project for this hop is one of the new release stamps simply titled "Aleks" By Jehanne Silva Freimane. The stamp measures 3.75" Tall x 2.75" Wide.

I  have a special person who will be receiving this come Christmas.  I tried to keep the card somewhat masculine due to the person I will be sending it to. The image was such fun to color and I absolutely love the little birdy looking up at "Aleks"

I have used an image from the new release set called "Modern Christmas Set" By Vickie Duffill. It is an amazing set of sentiments which I am sure I will use over and over again :-)

Here is a close up of my coloring. I have used Copic Markers in E000,E00,E04,E11,E21,E31,E33,E35,E44,E47,E49,E59,R20,R27,R29,G24,G94,G99,Y17

I hope you like my project and be sure to leave a comment to be eligible for the blog candy and I would love for you to become a follower of my blog. I look forward to reading your comments about my work, now please hop on over to Tracey's blog for more inspiration.
