The C Word

Scary I know but it will eventually have to be said…. Christmas Cards eeek!

From Bethlehem by Mo’s Digital Pencil 

from bethlehem1

Coloured with Copic Markers, chalk pencils, Pan Pastels and a white sharpie marker.

The dies I used are Spellbinders cross die set and a Cheery Lynn holly branch.

I kept it simple as the image is so vibrant I didn’t want to overwhelm it.

Your talents are so incredible. Not only is this image so special but you have colored it in a way to make it even better. The cross die and holly leaves add just the right touch without overwhelming the image. Put together, this is a very memorable card.
