Last one! The intended targets loved it.
My first attempt at a shaker card, I think it turned out well, considering I couldn’t find any 3d foam tape. And the “Noel” is a touch off centre, but it still turned out lovely.

My apologies for the blurry photo, and for forgetting to post this here.
This one was for C, who’s an amazing person, and always gets the most difficult card to make.
I struggled with so many different ways to make the “Season’s greetings” writing, only to settle on 3D glue with black holo glitter dusted onto it. The Northern Lights were difficult to paint (since I’m bad at landscapes), and the trees were so darn stabby.

I feel like, my finished pieces never live up to my sketches. Or rather my sketches have more life in them.

So, I love cows, the vast majority of bovine creatures really, because they’re just so darn cute. They’re like over-sized puppies, and it helped that once a cow tail-whipped my little bro in the face when he was a kid (that is one of my favourite memories as a kid).
And bison, are a type of cow, at least I’m fairly certain they are, and they have this adorably curly fur. Which one day I’d like to ruffle my hands in to see if it’s as soft as I think it is.
I think I went overboard with the reddish-pink around his eye, however his nose turned out wonderfully.
Ink and watercolour pencils.
Trying to learn how to do underpaint (is that a word?), this is about 2 different layers each sealed with a matte medium. The base layer is the ink shading, and the second is the watercolour tint. I’m still sorting how I feel about this technique, I need to try it more I think.

A quick little painting. I need to remember to mask off areas when I’m splattering paint everywhere.
Watercolours, Finetec inks.
Pineapples. They’re delicious and coming back into season.
Watercolour, brush pen.
I also have to thank Eevee, for sitting on this while it was wet.
