Dutch Dare Challenge - Sketch

Christmas is Coming .......

Well, this is my final challenge entry this week. I have made this christmas card for the dutch dare challenge. I thought it was a good excuse to get on with my christmas cards. I have alot to make for myself this year and I am hoping to sell a few too. It is a Penny Black image sent to me by the lovely Jill and ive used some crystal lacquers to colour in his coat, stickles for his hat and scarf and the pro markers for his face and paws. The papers were froma DCWV christmas stack I brought last year. The icicles are a packet of irridescent confetti I brought last year too.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, hugs Linda x
