High Hopes Challenge # Non-Traditional Christmas Colors

High Hopes Stamps - Page 003

 Happy Sunday! This week over at the High Hopes challenge, Nikki is challenging us to create Christmas card using non-traditional colors. I thought these cute little singing duo would fit the bit…and they appeal to the Canadian in me as they are part of the wild-life that surrounds where we live.  I have used various shades of brown to color them in. I based the colors in with my copic markers and then added all the shading with my prismacolor pencils. I really love combining these two mediums together. Afterwards I masked the image and  airbrushed the background.
