Thought I'd experiment. Maybe it has been done before, but I never did it! I used my Tombow pens to first watercolor this image. Then, to deepen the colors, I went over the whole thing with my Copic markers. It caused some unwanted bleeding in some areas, of the original inked image. I tried to cover those mistakes. Flubs aside, I do really like the effect and will probably use this combination of mediums again sometime.
I found these teeny tiny Christmas bells in the dollar store yesterday, and got a bag of silver and a bag of gold ones. I thought, PERFECT for Christmas cards! So this card actually makes music when you pick it up. I thought it also really appropriate because of what Choppers is holding!
The bottom panel was done with the gingerbread border stamp on brown cs and colored with gel pens. I love how it actually looks cookie-ish. New word.
The other panels are designer paper by Sandy Lion.
The sketch for this card and for the Sweet Saviour card came from the Wednesday's Sketch Challenge on SCS.
All stamps are from High Hopes Stamps.
TFL, and thanks for stopping by my blog!
