Sneak Peek #4: Abigail's Gift + More Giveaways!

Hello friends and welcome to Sneak Peek 4:  Abigail's Gift!  She comes with several great phrases, some Christmas and some Birthday so she is multifunctional!   I am doing the sneak peek artwork for you today, so I thought I would share how I choose colors for my characters.  This will work with any type of coloring you do: markers, colored pencils, watercolors, even crayons!

I wanted to use a corrugated card I got in a set by Recollections, knew I wanted her to be in Christmas colors, but didn't plan to use any patterned paper on this card.  I STILL got out a few papers out of my stash that had the colors I felt went together.  The 6x6 sets from Bo Bunny work great (as do all the sets) because they have done the work already to have the papers coordinate.  So I pulled out 3 pages and matched them up with my Copics (again, get your crayon box and do the same thing, if you are using crayons instead!). 

I colored her and cut her out and put her on this great corrugated card base with a ribbon I got from Walmart (go figure!):
I sponged Tea Dye Distress Ink around the sentiment from this set as well as the edges of the corrugated card base.  I hope you like her!
