Back to share some more of the 2013 Christmas cards. I have actually been working on some for 2014 already, and throwing in a birthday card here and there, but those are for another day.
I did some hand coloring, both with colored pencils and watercolor, and a marker here and there.
With the pencils, I did this--
Oh, and a quick trick--The white "merry"? The liner paper from the red sticky vinyl one! It was so shiny and bright, I just HAD to use it! Sad that the vinyl itself was such a challenge to work with. I abandoned it almost immediately.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
All Best to You-
