Today's challenge was to use a tree. I used my Silhouette to cut out the background frame and then ran it through the printer to put the sentiment on it. It was from Deja Views the Sharon Ann collection. I cut out the little frame for my Old World Santa (a past freebie) and ran it through the printer to put him on it. I colored him with a combination of my Zig markers, EK Success pencil crayons, Martha Stewart glitter markers and a white gel pen. I used Diamond Sparkles for his beard and DecoArt Snow Writer for his cape. I LOVE the snow writer, it adds such texture!
My lessons learned: the girls and I have all been sitting down at the dining room table after supper to color (Daddy too, he just doesn't color). It's great for all of us to "craft" together. The only downside? The table gets bumped A LOT. I save my really detailed coloring for when they go for snack ;o)
