Fa la la la la!

I’m not afraid to say that this image took me a while to colour, I love the result I got though, sometimes after I merge a few images ready to colour I look at it for a good while before I start, then once I start I keep taking a break from it and keep walking away and only doing little bits at a time, it seems to stop me from making hasty colour decisions.

So the images used are Charlie Caroling, Maisie Caroling, Victoria Caroling and  Christmas lamp post or you can buy them in a set Ragged Carolers from Mo’s Digital Pencil.

I used the Martha Stewart border punch for the pine needle frame I also used my Copic Airbrush for the background and finished with ribbon, a bell and a couple of pearls

And now Mo has been so kind as to merge the three together for those of us who aren't so patient.

Your coloring's great, and I popped over to see what the snowflake border was from ... so it just goes to show how versatile those pine needles really are!
