Christmas Mermaid

Hi People!  When I coloured "Christmas Mermaid", hubby Mike immediately claimed it for his Christmas card this year.  Heh-heh!
She's a digital image and I coloured her with a combination of Copics (first) and then Prismacolour Pencils overtop.  The water background is just Copics (a teeny tiny bit of white gel pen for some of the bubble highlights) and this is what I used: 
B0000, 000, 00, 60, 32, 05
BG11, 13, 01, 23, 32
I also used a ruler to make sure I kept the streaks straight!
The background paper I used is from my set of digitals at Whimsy called Snowdrops.  I like how it looked "scaley" which really went well with the fishy/mermaid theme of this Christmas card. 
I made the sentiment on my computer.  
Thank you so much for looking!

Penguin Elves at the Workshop

Hi Peeps! Here's my rendition of "Penguin Elves at the Workshop", complete with a background I made for it.  I used Copics mainly, but also a few Prismacolour pencils on some of the areas I wanted to polish.  Also used was a white gel pen for the sparkle on the hat and the snow outside the window. 
Copic list:
Penguin whites: 0 blender, R30 (blush), YR30, E40, BV20, V95, E70
Feet and beaks: YR31, 12, 14, 27, E99
Clothing Greens: FYG1, FYG2, YG01, 23, 06, 25, 67

Bauble reds: R00, 30, 21, 32, 14, 43, 46, 56
Bauble greens: G20, 02, 16, 19

Gold lightbulbs: Y000, 13, 15, YR12, 23

Tree and garland greens: YG01, 03, 13, 45, BG96, 99, G28, 29, 46
Wood wall: W1, 3, 5, 6
Floor: YR30, E41, with E43, 44 in shadows
This is meant to be a picture to frame rather than a card that I hope gets used as a Christmas decoration every year. Thanks for looking!

Penguin Fun In Fall

Hi Everyone! 
I love to walk through piles of leaves on a sunny autumn day and hear the leaves crunch under my feet.  It is one of my favourite things to do in this season.  This is "Penguin Fun In Fall", a newly released digital image at Whimsy Stamps.  I coloured this scene using Copics first, then followed up with Prismacolour Pencils. I especially enjoyed doing the texture of the bark on the tree (tree was freehand drawn and is not included in the image file).  Here is your close-up:

Polar Bear's Christmas Tree

Hi Peeps! This is "Polar Bear's Christmas Tree", a red rubber image I did for Whimsy Stamps.  I loved making a snowy scene with my Copics! The background paper is from my digital pack, "Winter's Magic Blue".  The sentiment was also from a digital set, "Penguin Christmas Sentiments 1 Set". Here is your close-up:
And here are the Copic colours I used: 
Thanks for looking! Happy Canadian Thanksgiving everyone!

Scruffy Cat

Hi Peeps! Here's Scruffy the Cat from my "Scruffy Cat Set", a digital set with two images (one of Scruffy with the hat and one without the hat).  Background papers are from my digital paper pack, "Christmas Red, Gold and Green".  
I coloured the image using Copics and added a few Prismacolour pencils on top.  Here's the list of Copics used: 
W0, E40, YR30, BV20 on Scruffy's white paws
Grey fur: N0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Red hat: R30, 11, 21, 22, 224, 27, 43, 39
White trim on hat: B0000, E70, BG90, W0, N0BV20
For the space around Scruffy I first coloured it in with YR31, then did the Bokeh effect by dropping little drops of YR30, R00 and 0 blender repeatedly (allowing them to dry between applications) and being careful not to drop any too close to the cat. Edges of the main panel were sponged with some brown ink.
I printed the sentiment from the "Merry and Bright" digital set and then cut it out with the candy cane die (discontinued, sorry!) and then coloured in the stripes with markers and pencils. Thanks so much for looking!

Pretty Girl Happy Mail

Hi everyone! Here's a newly released digital image called, "Pretty Girl Happy Mail".  I had fun colouring her with a combination of Copics followed by Prismacolour pencils, and white gel pen for the snowflakes. The papers are from two digital packs at Whimsy: "Flourishing Blooms" and "Christmas Azure", designed by Yours Truly! The sentiment on the image panel is also a digital from my "Penguin Christmas Sentiments Set 1" and the word JOY! was stamped and embossed and is from the "Penguin Holiday Squares" set. 
Here's your close-up:
