ok, so Christmas is a long way away .. .. but you gotta start early! The current challenge on Lili's Little Fairies is to show your favourite LOTV stamp - that's a hard one for me as I have lots of favourites and can't make up my mind. I do have a soft spot for the little boys, having a couple of grandsons I use them as the excuse to keep adding to my collection! This cute image is one I had inked up but never got around to colouring in, so here he is ready for Christmas 2012!
Copic colours are my usual skin tones plus Y13, Y35 &Y38 for yellows, G24 & G28 for greens, R22, R24, R27 & R29 for reds, E33, E35, E37 & E39 for browns, the foreground is E40 & E81 and the shadow is warm greys.
The papers are more magazine freebies, this time from We R Memory Keepers, edges inked with Jumbo Java Versa Magic chalk ink, matted with textured green card from my stash. I've kept things quite plain, no flowers as it's a boy card. Instead I've added a Marianne diecut tree, a couple of diecut stars, then I went a little crazy with the red pearl maker pen!
In case you wondered where I've been the past few days, well I've been busy with the DIY again, deciding what colour to pain the kitchen area above the units and tiles - we have 3 different patches of green and a couple of creams on the wall to cogitate over .. .. ..
The ABC Christmas challenges have started over again, this time with A = anything goes, perfect! The Stampin' for the Weekend challenge is to use your old stash this week, while the Totally Gorjuss blog challenge is for stars so I can enter with both of them too.
