Today we start our new challenge over at One Stitch At A Time, Challenge 214, Anything Goes. For this challenge it was my turn to chose the image and being that I have only done a few Christmas card I chose Hot Chocolate by BearyDust. He is so cute with his little cup of cocoa and mint sticks. : D I love having Hot Chocolate during Christmas time, it just makes Christmas so festive and don't forget the whip cream.Mmmm
After I was done coloring him I was going to add fun flock but he was just to cute, so I didn't want to cover him up. I added Glossy Accents to his eye & nose, the brown cocoa part on the cup and the mint sticks, added liquid applique to the hat and the foamy part of the cocoa to make look like some yummy whip cream.
Hope you like it -
Can you see the liquid applique looks so awesome, love this stuff. lol The stickels make it look so neat. I tried to get the Glossy Accents to show up but it was hard to catch. You can see it darkened the eyes and nose.
