Hey everybody, how ya doin'? I hope that this post is finding you all well, and keeping busy! Speaking of keeping busy, I also hope that we all have the time to get those much-needed Christmas cards done! We're already through most of the first half of the year, so time is flying by!
At Christmas with the Cuties this month, we are looking for you to use those lovely traditional colors of RED and GREEN, and our sponsor is My Besties:
Here is the card I created:
This is one of the images the team was provided with for this challenge, and it is called Gnome-ville IMG14. He is so cute! This is the first gnome I have ever had to play with. Instead of my go-to alcohol markers, I decided to use my Prismacolor colored pencils again. Even though I LOVE being able to blend with markers, I also love the texture that colored pencils give to an image. I tried my best this time to keep a light hand while coloring...boy is that hard for me to do! LOL! Anyway, I wanted to add more texture to his beard than the lines already drawn in, so I used the 2 grey pencils in my set and started adding hair. I *think* I may have gone a bit overboard, as now his beard is grey instead of the white I wanted it to be, but so be it! To add even more texture to the image, I added Stickles to all the snow, and white puffy paint to his hat brim. Oh, and also some white gel pen details on the pompoms. The plaid paper comes from Lawn Fawn's Perfectly Plaid Christmas 6x6 pad, and the sentiment is from the Nutty or Nice collaboration stamp set from Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp. It was stamped using VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink.
