Finally getting to my LOTV images!

Well, it is Sunday evening and the work week is getting ready to begin again. Don't know what the weather is like wherever you are but they are calling for several inches of snow and temp's in the low 20's for the next few days. I guess winter truly is here! This is my next to last christmas card (unless I remember someone I forgot about) and it is for my parents. The paper is mistletoe by memory box and the image is by lili of the valley. I have several of their stamps and meant to do all my xmas cards with them but there were so many cute stamps out there this is the only one I have used. And they have a new release next month and some of the sneak peeks are so cute I know some of my xmas money will be going there.

I tried using some prisma pencils for extra shading on this image. Need to practice it some more cause right now it looks a little harsh but it does add some depth. It also has some chalk ink on the edges of both images to soften them a bit to match the cream color in the background paper and I just noticed I forgot to cover up the "oops" I made when outlining the image on the left. Will have to put a flower or snowflake on it. Ok, that is it for me this evening, time to start supper. Potato soup on a cold evening, yum!

Hi Amanda. This is just adorable! I love your coloring and I think the colors are just awesome. As for your mistake I think it looks like part of the scene. Great job. Drive careful when you head out. I too love the lace on your card. Hugs, Lisa
