Santa's lil' helpers flirting

When I saw Meljens digi release for this Thursday at Whimsy I just knew I had to get my hands on them - the most adorable full set of ALL the Santa's reindeer AND Santa's sleigh. SO cute!

I didn't get myself organized by the actual release day (that would be SO not me!) and with it being a mad week I didn't have time to make a card either but I stole some time one evening to colour up Vixen and Cupid with Derwent Inktense pencils. Of course I just wanted to see if those pencils would work on kraft as well. They're OK but not as smooth and blendable as Prismas.

I used one of Raindrop Echo sentiments from the Christmas Sentiments set too. And then I just used the image to perk up a very simply wrapped pressie. :)

I'd like to enter these challenges:
Charisma Cardz (3 entries) - christmas gift
 Digi Doodle Shop's Best - animals or insects
Dutch Dare (2 weeks, 2 entries) - christmas
Penny's Paper-Crafty (2 weeks) - christmas
Stampavie and More - christmas
Stampin' Royalty - winter holidays
A Spoonful Of Sugar - christmas
My Time To Craft - reindeer
Bunny Zoe's Crafts (2nd monday) - christmas but no cards
 Gingerloft (2 weeks) - bows

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
Hugs

Tine said...

Your artwork is always brilliantly coloured, whichever pencils you use! How do you manage to do such creative colouring at night? My eyes get tired and the light messes with the colours too. Fab creation, Annika.
