A Mojo Colour Challenge for today

I took a peek at the mojo sketch challenge this week and just couldn't resist!  It was perfect for a Christmas image I got by Stampavie from i {heart} papers called Jolly Holly.


I used Mitten Weather 6x6 paper pad by Cosmo Cricket, and then I went to check the Colour Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers; Poppy Tempting White, and it was almost identical to what I had already chosen.  I think my blue is a little washed out, but the turquoise parcels are perfect for the challenge!

My sentiment is from a terrific Christmas sentiment only set from Hero Arts called, Holiday Sayings.  It is cut out using Labels Trio spellbinders dies, then I used a black marker to outline it.  I used Red Twill Stripe ribbon for a little more holiday sweetness!


The image is coloured with copic markers and I used far more than is appropriate to share!!!  I think my count was 38-ish.  My desk was a mess, completely covered with copic colour groupings.  Good grief!  When all was said and done though, it really was a happy place - almost as therapeutic as a bubble bath.

Happy hump day, people and thank-you for popping by today!

Santa, Rudolph and Frosty... what an adorable trio! You did a great coloring job with those Copics. The dp's you chose go so well together, especially with that magnificent bow!
