Oddball Art Stamps Challenge - A Winter's Tale

It's a New Year and it's time for a new challenge over at the Oddball Art Stamps Blog,  our theme for this month is 'A Winter's Tale'

Here's my creation, It's inspired by the song 'A Winter's Tale' by David Essex, and brings back memories of me narrating the christmas play in primary school, back in the mid 80s;

I used the gorgeous 'Holiday Alex' image #357,  She is coloured with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Pens and a little white gel pen for highlights.

I had great fun colouring this cutie, love how her skin and outfit came out, need to practise more on the black hair.  Takes a while to get use to new pens and how the colours work together, but the Illustrator Pens are lovely to work with.

For my background I used digital papers designed by my Oddball Art Stamps DT Colleague Lozzy, you can grab them for free on her blog, along with some other wonderful designs. They worked perfect for this project.

I added some white and pale blue ribbon to my background, along with some silver bells, a white flock snowflake, and blue gem.
