Snow Family Christmas


My Christmas card stash is growing, slowly, but surely. Here's a card I made to add to it today.

The main image is a Penny Black stamp called "Snow Family" (2526K) and the sentiment is from a Stamping Up! set called "Best Yet".

Colouring - For the red I used an Aquamarker, I'm trying to get the hang of these, but I need to try much harder. For the green I used a Staedtler Ergosoft pencil. I really do enjoy using these pencils, I much prefer them to my Prismacolor pencils and, finally, for the snowmen I used a blue promarker. Oh, not to forget a white Polychromos pencil on the hats. How's that for a mix!

Tomorrow I am going to visit my brand new baby niece. I'm really looking forward to meeting her.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Hugs Clare xx
