Hello friends. Been a while since I made a Christmas card and I have to tell you that I've missed it! NOT the actual snow or anything, just the making of Christmas cards!
So many of you have heard me mention before that I have a love/hate relationship with Zig markers. Most people absolutely LOVE them! I want to love them, but...I just really struggle with them. I would so much rather play with my Copics! But anyway, decided it was time to get them out again and practice. This first picture shows my image colored in mostly all Zigs:
I used an image by Stampingbella called Miles in WINTER. I like the way bits and pieces of this turned out, but there are areas I really do not like...like the squirrel on his hat and his coat. So I tried again, and this time used Copics and Zigs and actually finished it off into a card.
I did the squirrel, coat, and his face with Copics this time, and then the rest is colored with Zigs. Oh and the little branch he is carrying is colored with a Copic marker. I guess I'm learning, but still feel like I have miles (no pun intended!) to go!
I am adding this card to the Summer link up over at MERRY MONDAY's . Couple more weeks to play along with the Summer link up (Merry Monday goes back to it's weekly challenges starting Monday, Sept. 5), so if you miss making Christmas cards like I did this Summer, you can still play in this challenge!! :0)
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
