Featured Artist Week with Lina

With Conies images it's always hard to choose. So many beautiful ones. But my favorite of hers is Sally & Snowball. It's just so incredibly cute and full of emotion. And I love making it into a Warm Winter Greetings card or, as in this instance, a Christmas card. In June, yeah, I know. At least this way I got one done this year. I always seem to be behind with my Christmas cards.

As always I used Copics to color the pretty image. These are the ones I used:

Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11
Reds: R35, R46, R59, R89
Hair: E21, E35, E57, E49
Greens: YG61, YG63, YG67, G99
Yellow: Y21, Y23, Y26, Y28, E15
Fluff: W0, W1, W3
Snowball the Cat: W3, W5, W7

I had chosen my papers, which were leftovers from a collection I bought last year, before I chose which Copics to use. This way I could get it all to match somewhat nicely. It might be a little untradtional to have cherry blossoms and green roses on a Christmas cards, but it was the only ones I got, that matched. And I don't really think the recipient will mind terribly.

The pretty stamp, Sally and Snowball, is available at the Sweet Pea Stamp store as a digi and rubber stamp.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
