TAC Deck the Halls Blog Hop and SSSC#92



I decided a couple of weeks ago I wanted to participate in the TAC Deck the Halls Christmas blog hop and have some items picked out that I have been intending to order for a few weeks now...but I never got my order placed,lol. Last Sunday I decided that I was just out of time to order and get something done. Hummm, what now??
As I was going through some images that I had previously stamped out on paper, I found this gem. She is the cutest little MRO image EVER and is from the set WinterCheer (very retired!! but woulnt she be great to see again~). This is another all time favorite of mine. I bough this set just for this image. Unfortunatley, I sold this set at my last garage sale (probably should have not done that). So this was my one and only image that I have left.

Talk about pressure! I started to sweat over coloring this little jewell. Copics or pencils??? Safe side of me said pencils...I can do those and I am not sure how old this paper is and how it will react to the Copics. The other side of me was screaming COPICS cause vivid color would look awesome with this image. I watched a few of the videos on the TAC Papercrafting site on how to use my Copics, practiced a couple of techniques using circles and off I went. I took my time coloring this frosty snow girl and was pretty please with the coloring..considering I have not done much practicing :) It was only after I finsihed the complete card that I realized that the light should be coming from the camp fire...uh duh! I had an imaginary sun to the back of her,hehe. Once done coloring I decided to try to use the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge from
The Sweetest Things blog for this week. It was a challenge but it was fun!

Supplies:
Stamps: The Angel Company (WinterCheer)
Other Supplies: Pure Poppy Ribbon and Paper,  Snowflakes Dies, Copic colored crystal gems, Large Scallop Border Die, Tempting Turquoise Paper-and a button
