Friends are the true gifts

Isn't Christmas a crazy time of year?  All that running around, trying to find the perfect gifts?  I really should get mine done now, while it's not too busy!


I think this Tilda is so adorable!  I know she's not a traditional Christmas image, but I couldn't resist her!


I used some wool with colorless blender to add a bit of texture to her pants!

Challenges:
Mercy's Sketch (Lord Have Mercy)
Mad For Markers:  Copics + Christmas + non-traditional colours
Aly's Sunday Challenge: music (All I want for Christmas)
Going Grey With Scrap Creations: song inspiration (All I want for Christmas)
Lili of the Valley Thursday Challenge:  Anything Goes
Flourishes:  Just get your holiday cards done
ABC Challenge:  H is for Holidays
Stamp & Create Challenge #7:  Tis the Season

I wish Tilda would go do my shopping for me!

Thanks for stopping by!

Christine, I love the purples in this and I love how you've colored Tilda. The colors looks so streamlined and perfect. Are those copics?

Hugs,

Jackie

Thanks, Jackie! This was entirely colored with copics, except the purple edging on the cardstock, which is chalk. I did a lot of Palette Blending Technique on this image!
