Hello hello - how are you?!
It's the last Saturday of September already - wow!
The theme challenge this week at
CHALLENGE #401 - is to make a Holiday creation.
There's a couple easy peasy ones coming up...
Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
I chose Christmas as my holiday.
These two lovely carolers are from HOLIDAY STYLE
which happens to be on sale this weekend as part of the
FRUGAL FRIDAY Sale (through the weekend while
supplies last). The sentiment is from another
beautiful Christmas set called Holly Jolly.
I used my Prisma color pencils on this
and then added distress oxide ink for shading and
liquid pearls for the snow fall.
Boy those colored pencils are not as easy for
me to use as my copics are. Mostly I struggle with
which shades are supposed to be blended or shaded into
the others (like EO2 goes with E04 etc.). I am pretty happy
though with the skin this time as that's been my biggest
challenge with pencils so far. I just keep practicing :o)
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
I sure hope that you will decide to join us for this challenge
and share you own beautiful holiday creation with us.
I can't wait to see what you make!
