I'll admit, when it is my turn to come up with a sketch, I usually have the card envisioned in my head and just translate that vision into a sketch so it is pretty easy when it comes to making my card. Unless, however, the vision in my head turns out to be garbage when I put it into practice!
Hopefully this time, you think all worked out well! I used Mo's Who Me image available in rubber from Stamping Bella. One nice thing about using rubber is that you don't have to try and guess how big or small to make the image and print out several samples before you decide cause that decision has already been made for ya so it is just stamp and go! There is something about rubber that I just LOVE!
Again I used Memento Ink and Bella's BESTEST paper and coloured with the following copic markers. Lots of E's here! I didn't write down the pencils I used, but likely just some light and dark umber for shading on his clothes and maybe deco blue and mediterranean blue for the sky (i use those a lot!)
E0000, 000, 00, 11, R20
E41, 41, 42, 43, 44, 50, 51, 53, 33
E13, 17, 19, W1, 3, 5, C0, 1
I finished it off with some Basic Grey paper, ribbon and charm from the stash and a cute little let it snow sentiment. For some reason I have this 'thing' that I like to have sentiments on the front of my Christmas cards....don't ask! I don't know!
