“Holiday Cheer for you, my deer!”
Yes, it’s November already. Can you believe it? I’m mystified by the quick passage of time but dealing with it by looking forward to all the next few months will have to offer. My husband and I will be traveling to London later this month for a few days; a little escape for us while we attend the vow renewal of a colleague. One of the many things I’m looking forward to is seeing the Christmas decorations that have begun bedecking the city. We really enjoyed them last year and I’m hoping they will inspire me to continue working on my Christmas projects at home.
Speaking of those projects, here’s a card made using an adorable image of a very festive little deer – she’s looks ready to celebrate, too!
When I set out to color this image I realized it would be good practice for working on brown color combinations. Although I’m getting braver about trying my own, I do like to have a starting point sometimes and will research what others have tried. Pinterest is a good resource for this and I always enjoy when a crafter has shared an image along with the colors they used to complete it. I thought you may like having this information, too, so below is a graphic showing the Copic marker combinations I tried on the above image. I hope you find it helpful!
