Holly, Jolly Christmas
Listening to a little Bing Crosby today while I played in anticipation of the new Michael Buble album that we will buy this year. I really enjoyed coloring up this Holiday Hugs Snowman from My Favorite Things....and guess what.....it released Tuesday! Yay!
A couple of coloring things I wanted to point out. Did you know that it is so much quicker and easier to get a large, smooth colored background with copics if you soak your paper with your blender pen first. It "primes" the paper for your color.
I love the blue/green colors combined with the yellow/greens for winter. My sentiment was musical so I rolled up some old sheet music for the backdrop of this card. That beautiful yellow/green background paper is from Melissa Frances.
Here is the list of copic marker colors that I used:
T0,2,5,8,10 YG61,63,95,97 E000,50,53,31 YR20,15,18 BG09 and the blender pen for the spots in the background.
