In the week before Christmas I was laid low with the horrible cold-flu thing that seems to have been doing the rounds recently; I rallied enough to enjoy Christmas dinner with the neighbours (just as well I didn’t have to cook that day), but I am still not one hundred per cent over it… All of which is why these last Christmas card posts have been going up somewhat later than I had intended.
Luckily I had finished making cards before falling ill, well almost finished… On Christmas Eve I suddenly realised I hadn’t made one for my other half, so I bravely set about making this spinning yeti, only to then get a migraine that meant I couldn’t actually focus on the yeti to colour it… So this card was finished off on Christmas morning…
These cards were created on 17th November; day 17 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge.
Yes, even more yetis… The last ones for the moment, but I can’t promise I won’t be using them again 🙂 These were inspired by my other half suggesting that I should have a yeti peeking from behind a tree.
These cards were created on 11th November; day 11 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge.
Yes, more yetis… They are a nice, fairly simple, shape which lent itself well to being used for testing a bunch of different ways of adding texture and sparkle, and it would be a shame to waste those test pieces 🙂
This time I created a stamped tree background for them to stand in front of.
These cards were made on 10th November; day 10 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge. The yetis were coloured earlier in the challenge.
I told you I love these yetis… and these are not the last you’ll see this month. I did try to do something a bit different with each pair though; this time I created a snowy landscape scene inside a circle frame as backgrounds for my two yetis – one coloured in Copic markers and one covered in white shimmer detail sparkle.
I just love these yetis. Last year it was the Create A Smile santa that got used repeatedly; this year it’s these yetis. They are just too adorable.
