Faery Ink Inspirational - Gabbie Holiday Belle

It's my turn to share some Faery Ink Inspiration, today I'm using one of the October new releases Gabbie Holiday Belle.  I really love the old-fashioned traditional look to this image which is why I have chosen to colour Gabbie Holiday Belle's outfit in dark colours as in my mind her dress is a luxury velvet.
Gabbie Holiday Belle is coloured using the following Graph It markers; Skin; 4120, 4125, 4135, 4150, 4155, Greenery; 8260, 8270, 5240, 5245, Lampost & Shadow; 9501, 9502, 9505, Bell; 9501, 9505, Skirt; 7175, 7180, 7190, Top; 5240, 5245, 5250, 9201, Eyes; 3245, Light; 2105, 2110, 2120, Hair; 3120, 3130, 3140, 3170.
I have used Vintage Christmas & Polar White Flower Soft on the head dress, lamp post and dress trim and Fluffy Stuff as snow as I think the image really lends itself to these products.
I have mounted Gabbie Holiday Belle on Anna Marie Designs black cardstock and tucked behind the image rolled off-cuts of Studio Light Festive papers.
The sentiment is from Get Stamping magazine The Classic Christmas Collection freebie set.  It is stamped, embossed and mounted on black card.

I really hope you pop along to the Faery Ink shop and pick up this digital image, I think it's a must for any Christmas collection.

Creative Blessings.  x

  3. Hi Tracy, I enjoy the old-fashioned traditional look on Gabbie Holiday Belle image. Her dress reminded me of a school play I was in many years ago. All the girls wore a pretty long Christmas dress and the boys wore a nice white shirt and tie. You did a fabulous job on your card, Thank you for sharing :)

  4. So cool! The way you did those little raised up strips of patterned paper is really inventive! Such an adorable creation!

  5. Stunning love this traditional stamp and what a great design I love those folded papers brilliant Love and hugs Carole x

  6. Love the vintage looking image and the rolls of wrapping paper are a brilliant idea
