It is still getting into the 90's here in Texas and I could really do with a cool down. As the weather channel don't seem to be sending me one I thought I may make my own with a Christmas Card! LOL
This is my 1st Christmas card this year and I really like how it turned out.
The April stamp was actually a Valentines stamp but with a little careful cutting and a Winter color theme I think she works well for this card too.

I managed to get it to work this morning :)
You can see that I paper pieced Aprils bow and dress and colored the rest of her and the image with Copic's. I airbrushed with W3 and E40 to give a (hopefully) dusk feeling to the image. Then finally I added Puffy Paint to certain areas of the the snow and heated it to pop it up.
I don't know whether April is peeking in at Santa's workshop, going to start caroling but whatever she is doing I think she looks cute and hope you do too.
