Festive Hollybobs

Polkadoodles is the sponsor over at Colour Crazy Craft Challenge and I thought as it has been so warm outside recently that we could all do with a bit of a cool down so I opted to work with  the Festive Hollybobs collection. The digi used is available on it's own HERE but I used the paper's from the collection too.

I laid down an initial base colour of Graph'it marker (4125, 8240, 5210, 1210, 9100) then used my Prisma pencils to add the shading (1001, 939, 927, 928, 1018, 988, 911, 910, 923, 924, 1033, 1032, 914, 1022, 1025) I think it makes the image look less 'flat'.

Here is the finished article. I've currently left it without a sentiment as I've not yet decided who will be the recipient. I will personalise it nearer the time.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Please feel free to leave me a comment as I do love to read them.
