Gentle Season Filled with Happiness

Dear friends,

It has been awhile since I've used my House Mouse stamps.  There are so many cute Christmas images, I can't pass up the opportunity to use them.    I picked this one, because I was inspired by a fellow stamper.   She did a amazing job of shading green and red together. I had never tried this before and wanted to give it a shot.

Copics used:

Red: R02, R05, R14, R17, R24, R29, R39
Green: YG61, YG63, YG67
Sky: B00, B000
Skin of Mice: E50, E51, E93
Fur of mouse 1: E21, E23, E25
Fur of mouse 2: E53, E35, E57
Flame: YR12, Y13, Y11

Please keep in mind that the blending red and green is difficult.  You can do it, just take your time. It is good to challenge yourself.  It is how we grow as artists.

If you are just getting started and this looks too intimidating. You can also simplify your reds to make this a little easier.   Try R17, R24, R29 or R24, R27, R29.  You could also make some leaves totally green and others red.

Happy Coloring,
