Here I’ve used the  beautiful Dove image from CoCoDingo as a Christmas image but it would make a serene sympathy or thinking of you type card.I’ve coloured with Promarkers,using the Blender on the dove and around the edges.The dots amongst the foliage have been coloured with a Sky Blue Copic Spica pen,altho’ the glitter doesn’t show.I’ve finished off with lots of gems…. well,because it’s Christmas!Who wouldn’t love a few sparklers this time of year?
