It’s the 1st of December and that means a new challenge over at ABC Challenges.
We completed the alphabet with our last challenge so that means we are back at the start.
So, our challenge for you today is ‘A is for Almost Christmas’.
Our sponsor for this challenge is The Paper Shelter and they have provided us with some gorgeous images to work with.
I decided to use ‘Yep, I have my Methods!’.
Here’s what I came up with.
I’ve printed my image onto Cryogen White cardstock and coloured with Copic Markers.
The colours I’ve used are as follows:
Skin – E11, E00, E000, R20
Clothes – R39, R37, R35, R32, R0000
Boots, Belt & Gloves – C10, C8, C6, C4, C2, C00
Bird, Belt Buckle & Balloon String – YR24, YR23, YR21, YR0000
Chimney – E49, E47, E44, E42, E0000
Balloon & Bird Hat – B99, B97, B95, B93, B0000
Snow – B91, B0000
Beard & Coat/Hat edges – C1, C00
Here’s a closer look at the image.
I’ve also finished off the inside.
I’m not sure if I’ll stamp another sentiment or just leave it blank to write my own message, so for now it’s blank.
I love how this turned out and I used lots of new things that I had purchased over the last few months so that’s always a bonus.
