Cool Yule

Hi Lovelies,

This is my second post for today :)  please scroll down or go here to see my DT card for Try Stampin' on Tuesday.

Ok today I have a really sweet card to share with you all.  I'm loving the colours in it.  I found a new Christmas Blog called Always Playing with Paper & they have a challenge on at the moment to use any of their past sketches to create a card for the current challenge.  I decided to use this sketch, mainly becasue it fit in with my Digi image that I had previously printed & cut out.



I used Molly from Saturated Canary.  I just love this Digi image, don't you?  I had a great time colouring Molly in with my Copics.  I am still trying to get the hang of black hair with blue high lights. So her hair is probably more blue than black but still I'm pleased with the way it turned out.  I used warm greys on the "white" areas of her clothing & am really pleased with the way they turned out.  This was my first attempt at colouring white.

Well the kidlets have just gotten up so my peaceful morning has come to an end ;)  Thanks for stopping by, your comments mean the world to me.

Happy crafting my friends - Paula
