Okay...on to the card...I did not colour this one last year, I don't even think I had it last year and I'll NEVER know why because I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this image!
I started with a base of copic markers, but coloured it primarily with pencils to match up with the cosmo cricket paper. Just as I was about to start adding some snow or glitter (or both) below the trees I decided that the merry christmas sentiment would fit PERFECTLY stamped below that solid line. (hmmmm....do you think Emily planned that one out?)
My biggest stress was hoping I would stamp it straight! It is just a bit off so note to self...USE THAT STAMP POSITIONER WHEN YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS IN THE FUTURE! oh well, I'm not stressing over it...the teeny little flaws make it even more 'one of a kind'. I even decided that I wanted to keep the card 'cosy' so mounted it on an A2 size card which I rarely do. But it seems when I want a cosy feel, that is the size I use. Besides, when I display my xmas cards, it is always the smaller ones that get a spot 'up front' so I hope this one gets front and center wherever it may land.
That's it for today...tomorrow my card using the FANTABULOUS sketch from our fellow babe Paulineabella!
