Clear It Out Blog Christmas Challenge…

The Clear It Out Blog is having a month-long challenge for the month of December.  It’s an Anything Goes Christmas challenge and below is my first card for this challenge.  The image used is by Saturated Canary who just happens to be one of the sponsors for this challenge.  She’s giving away 2 digis to the winner of this challenge.

The sentiment was made using stick on alpha letters as well as my own handwriting (which needs major improvement).

The above image was colored with my favorite tool of choice … copics.  I used the following colors:

Skin Tones:  E000, E00 & E11
Hair: E34, E47, E57
Top & Socks: YG62, Y64, V06, V09
Tree, Buttons & Bag:  G03, G05, G07
Boots:  W0
Skirt:  B91, B93, B95
Candy Canes:  Bic Mark It –Rambunctious Red
Eyes & Lips:  B06, R29

I added a bow to finish it off and some snowflake brads to finish it off.

Hope to see you at the Clear It Out Challenge Blog where you can join us for this challenge.
