.....I was well into creating this one when I realised about the lack of snow, but then I thought in reality it hardly ever snows here at Christmas. We just always seem to associate snow with it. I like to be different though, hence my English (no snow) Christmas Card showing Douglas and Lily walking off their Christmas lunch on a bright Winter's day.
The scene is stamped and brayered as usual, then I created a mask to colour in the trees. I inked through it with green Distress Inks on an Ink Duster to give them their base colour. I made one of the trees a lot brighter than the others - for this one I coloured the holly and berries in with Sakura Glaze pens, where as the paler ones were done with coloured pencils. I thought this gave a nice contrast. I also added red glazed berries to the holly round the edge.
Douglas and Lily are stamped in Black Archival. This gives them a really nice solid black colour.
