O Christmas Tree
This card took a lot of Time which I am sure is only because I don't have Copic Markers!!! I won't complain too much because I think Santa believes that I deserve them ;o) I used a wide assortment of colors and combinations of water color pencils along with StampN Write markers. Believe it or not, I am actually pleased with the way my coloring turned out. Good thing because I get to make at least 2 more.
Did ya happen to notice just how clever that sentiment on the inside is referring to the "Gift" on the cover??? I'm glad that I also made the decision to dress up the inside of the card too. I used dots of red stickles for the holly berries to give them a bit of bling and more diminsion.
Not too chatty today, my apologies (I know you're really saying Thank Goodness) but 4:45 a.m. rolls around awfully early and I am totally beat. I'll be back tomorrow with a super cool card. I liked the way it turned out so much that I am actually going to mail it to my Daughter. Now that is special because most of them get placed into baskets. O I create each one with someone in mind, they just never leave ME............... does anyone else do that? I mean hoard your own cards?
