Snowman Nativity



I mentioned in last posting that my friend Shelley was coming over to finish up her Christmas cards well here is a sample of her finished product. We used the Snowman Nativity which is one of my all time favorites as I love snowmen images. Colored with watercolor pencils (I think this is one of the easiest coloring techniques to show a "newbie"), of course some stickle on the snow and who can't live without the new stardust pen for highlights. We found this ribbon while shopping at Archivers a couple of weeks ago and it matches perfect with the green/maroon hues. I also scanned the inside of the card and it completes the story of Christmas. When we started this project a couple of weeks ago she came over and I had several of my Christmas cards out for her to view and perhaps "case" and so I have to give credit to one of my downlines Donna as this is her idea - we just changed a couple of things to make it Shelley's own.
