Oh Christmas Tree

I've managed to put a card together with one of my late night coloured images - this little cutie from LOTV is called decorating the tree and I got him in the recent sale. Now of course, this morning I had to do a little retail therapy and order some of the new little girls just out today! The current theme on the LOTV challenge blog is anything goes so I'll enter my rather plain and simple card. I've added punched gold stars, red gems and the red satin ribbon, but avoided frills and flowers as it's one for my local Christmas craft fair where I just get £1 a card. The papers are a couple pieces of Designer Digitals downloads, different collections and just sitting around in my box so in need of using up! I've stamped the LOTV circular greeting and added more gems, then matted everything with red textured card from my stash.

The Copics I used to colour this little chap were my usual skintones, E000, 00, 21 and R00 for blush, plus the E 30 shades for the browns with E55 for shading. The reds are R24, 27 and 29, his fur hat trim is E0000 and E40, and the tree is G12, 14 and 17. I wanted a paler green for his cardigan so went with G40 and 82. For the gold stars I used Y15 and 35, then finally for shadow I used the warm greys.

For the card layout I went with the simple SSS112 sketch from the Sweet Stop blog so I can enter with them too.

  8. It's those checked trousers that I like - & the way you've used the tree patterned paper with the image too. Look forward to seeing your colouring of the new images too - it's the softness you achieve that is tantalisingly appealing - shall try some of your Copic recipes out too.
    Much love
