Silver Bells for Jingle Belles

The current challenge at the Jingle Belles blog is to create a project with bells on it or use silver or combine both elements. I decided to combine the two! 

I grabbed the retired SU set Bells and Boughs and colored the image with my Copics. To try an get a silver look I used the gray Copics. It's not perfect but it works, right? I didn't have any gray-blue Copics so I used some brighter blues and then colored over them with gray to tone them down.

My layout is from the current 'Tis The Season sketch. I took some retired SU All is Calm DSP and cut it into 2 panels. On the middle edges of the DSP I added silver strips of some washi tape that match the All is Calm DSP. I stamped the sentiment in between the 2 panels of DSP and then popped up the circle image panel with dimensionals. To finish off the card I added some nice silver rhinestones.
