Santa's Little Helper

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are ready for Christmas and not too shopped out.  I'm almost ready, just need a volunteer to do all the wrapping for me, but don't think that's going to happen.

I have for you today a Christmas Card using one of the gorgeous images by Robin Pushay called "Santa's little helper" by Crafts and Me. We have a bumper Winter Wonderland challenge over at CraftsandMeChallenges  lasting for a whole month to give the team some time off, so hope you can join us.  This is also my DT card for Copic Marker Europe, lots of inspiration on this site from all my lovely teamies, so well worth a visit.


I love how the tree turned out.  I basically coloured it using G99, C7, C5 and touches of YG03.  I then used a couple of sharpened prisma pencils to add the leaves.  The original image has beads around the tree but I so loved how it turned out that I didn't add them back in.

Copics Used:-
Reds; R89, R39, R37, R35 and shaded with C5, C3
Baubles; YR24, Y15, Y11
Tree; G99, C7, C5, YG03 and prisma pencils
Skin; E00, E01, E11, E000, E0000

The gorgeous flourish swirls are by Cheery Lynn and are called Victorian Romance Flourish.

Hugs Tracy x

Darn, and there was me planning to invite you over to come and wrap mine - did I mention I'd provide scones and jam?? (I'll even throw in some clotted cream)......no, oh well best stop procrastinating and do it myself.

Awesome card as always EQ!!
