I have to say... I'm not sure when the holidays started creeping up on me, but I'm floored that we're just a couple weeks from Thanksgiving. Where does the time go?
I HAVE to start on my holiday cards. I didn't send them out last year and really want to get to them this holiday season. Honestly, isn't that why we stamp? Haha... OK... some days I think it's to collect really amazing patterned paper and embellishments. But, I'm bound and determined to get holiday cards mailed this year!
Stampavie Bear and Robin image, which I bought at 7 Kids College Fund (doesn't that make you break out in a cold sweat... the thought of putting 7 kids through college?). OK, I'm back...
The sweet pair of friends are just darling and the image was begging for me to color. As a treat for myself, I sat down and enjoyed a few minutes with my paper, ink and copic markers. I colored the image with Copics, added highlights with Atyou Spica glitter pens and then added a light blue sky with my airbrush. To add a bit of texture to the soft, furry bear, I dampened a piece of muslin with the Copic blending solution and blotted over the colored bear.
Thanks for visiting!
