Wryn Goes Caroling for Fabby Friday!

Friday, December 5, 2014


It's a Tiddly Inks Fabby Friday, and today is extra special, because Christy is also releasing some of the cutest critter images ever! But, I'm not going to spoil it for you here--you'll have to see them for yourself! In the meantime, here's a Christmas card made with the Wryn Goes Caroling image.
I colored Wryn with Copics on X-Press Blending Card. There is some Glossy Accents on the berries on her hat, and bronze Pearl Pen on the music notes. This was fun to color, but I almost threw it out when my E79 marker--an extremely dark brown--leaked onto her hair!!! Colorless Blender and Prismacolor pencils to the rescue! You can still see a dark spot, but it's very faint, and I'm pretending it's a shadow from the holly leaf!!! Copics have given me such an appreciation of non-perfection. ;~) 

I used the Mojo 373 sketch for the layout, some Christmas papers, a few rhinestones and sequins, and added red Pearl Pen spots on the holly paper. I was visiting friends in Savannah when I colored this, so it was one of the rare times when I colored, having no idea at all what kind of paper I would use. I was stumped on this until I used the teal cardstock as my base and matting. This might be my new fav Christmas color palette!

The sentiment on the inside of the card is from Our Daily Bread, and it is stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa ink. 

Go here to see the Fabulous Friday offerings from the rest of the Tiddly Inks Design Team. Then, be sure to go to Christy's blog to see her newly released images, as well as more Design Team cards using them! I couldn't resist a single new image, and made a Be-ewe-tiful 8-card boxed set using every single one of them! ;-)

Thanks for stopping by, and have a Fabulous Day!
