Jul 242020

Loved all the challenges this month challenging everyone to get those Christmas cards started.

After making a list of several challenge requirements, I went in search of images, sentiments, embellishments, papers, etc. that could be used to fill those requirements.  I ended up finding this sweet angel from a 2016 set to create a couple of cards.

The first card uses a no lines coloring technique.

The second card uses the much more common technique of stamping the image in black so that the lines remain visible.

Both angels were colored with Copic markers.
