I've always considered myself more of a scrapbooker and only made cards when the occasion warranted it. However, the thought of making layouts seems very daunting when you've been away from it all for a while.
Then a friend started me on making cards as a way to ease myself back into crafting. A couple of months ago, my friend introduced me to The Greeting Farm stamps and I instantly fell in love with these adorable images. Since I bought a few stamps, my friend thought I should be introduced to Copics next and there goes all my spending money for the next 5 years!
So I've been you-tubing, and reading all the ins and outs of Copic colouring. I've been practicing like crazy and thought I would try participating into the Christmas in July challenge that The Greeting Farm has on their blog.
Here is my attempt with Holiday Anya:
Since I gave her red hair, I didn't want to go with the traditional red and green as I wanted her to stand out. So I thought I would give her a more "frosty/icy" look by giving her a blue dress with light grey fur. In keeping with the theme, I decided to go with a icy/wintery seasonal theme.
Now that I've done one...I must start on my Christmas cards. It's never too early!
