Christmas sheep by lake

Christmas card with a small sheep standing in front of a blue and green tree line reflected in a lake.

This is the first of this year’s Copic-coloured Christmas cards. I would normally be panicking that I’d only just started but I have a vague plan to do some small batches and if it doesn’t work out then so be it. This year I’m putting myself first and crafting for my own well-being.

This is based on the first lesson in the Winter Storybook class from Sandy Allnock over on Art-Classes. I love Sandy’s from scratch, no stamps classes; some of them can be a bit daunting at first, but I haven’t had any disasters yet, you just have to trust that it will come good in the end no matter how rough it looks at the start.

The little sheep has been sat in my stash for a very long time (the stamp set was bought over four years ago), but I think he fits perfectly into this simple storybook scene.
