Good morning, peeps! I'm not sure whether this parcel is in the process of being wrapped or unwrapped but someone's certainly in for a surprise at Christmas! Anyway this gorgeous image is for sale here at Digi Doodle Shop and it was great fun to colour with my Copics and pencils. No doubt you'll all be surprised to hear that I kept a note of the colours I used on this project and they're at the foot of this post! This card is for Challenge #37 at Digi Doodle Shop's Best, which this week is to put animals on your project. Hop over there now and see what my talented teamies have produced for this challenge and we all hope you'll join in the fun. The papers are from K & Co and the 'Noel' embellishment at the bottom is one of the die cuts from the pad,which is a Brenda Walton design. I simply distressed the die cut with Antique Linen Distress Ink and doodled some faux stitching around it with a black pen. The Nestie shape that the image is on is also distressed with the same ink. The gorgeous wide red organza ribbon is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the jewel brad and bead spacer are from The Hobby House. The green jewelled star looks most peculiar in this photo but it's a trick of the light - IRL it's the perfect green for the papers. Copics used: Mouse: W1, W3, W5, R11, R20 Box: E31, E33, E35 Paper inside: Y000, Y00, Y11 then I put E50 over the top to make the colour creamier Paper outside: E50, E51, E53, G24, YG67, G29, R24 Ribbon: YG11, YG03, YG25, R22, R24, R27 Pillow: BG000, BG11, BG34 In virtually all parts of the image I used various coloured pencils blended with Sansodor. Keep warm, peeps and I'll see you again soon!
