It's beginning to smell like Christmas

Hey there. The tree is up, the baking supplies bought... Gingerbread house decorated (ok - pre-baked gingerbread... wouldn't trust anything I baked not to be too soft), Chex Mix made and set of Peppermint brownies made. WHEW... crazy weekend... but it is beginning to smell like Christmas in MissAlaineous' Casa. I did get a chance to color up these two little angels and practice on my lighting from a point source.

After I colored up the Angels using the shading to try to make it look as if the lantern was the light source, I used som Y00 to highlight the lighter areas on the two angels and the snow.  I also added some nice sparkly prettyness on the fur, wings and snow to try to make it look like the crystals are reflecting the lights. LOVE... how it turned out.

I chose the colors based on the paper this time, and used RV9x and BG7x series as the primary colors. The boots are C series, and again I used a little yellow reflection.

I hope you all drop back by soon. I hope to have a bunch of Christmas cards up over the next couple of weeks, as well as some Bombshell Beuaties.  TTFN!

  1. Fabulous card with great coloring. I really like those angels! I could totally tell that the light was coming from the lantern.

    BTW, I almost always choose my Copics based on patterned papers...
