My starting point was an outline image of Christmas Bells with Poinsettia. Through Craft Artist Professional I painted the image & played with it using some of the many effects that are in the software.
This is the basic outline image which I downloaded from a royalty free site
This is the image after I have painted it - you can see it is my first attempt as down one side of the bell I have gone over the line.
This is the image after I have applied a couple of the glass texture effects. It changed some of the colour & applied its own "shot" finish.
This is the finished card. I have applied stitching around the two layers & have "dry" embossed the sentiment & the bell.
During the week I am going to print a copy to see how it looks in real life. Then I think if it is OK I will use it for a few Christmas cards this year.
