Productive Visit

Yesterday we went to London to visit some friends. As I’m still far behind with my Christmas cards, and it’s now a race against time to be able to finish all on time, I brought some stamps and my Copics with me. To my great surprise, it was a very productive visit; yesterday evening I colored three images and this morning two. When I’m at home, it takes me considerably longer, but I guess it’s because I then spend such a long time searching for papers and embellishments that will fit the image I want to color…

This is the first card I’ve put together. I followed the sketch from Cretalicious, where they also want to see some distressing. As I’m really hooked on that at the moment  (can’t wait for the Tim Holtz paper distressing tool to arrive 🙂 ), this was a no-brainer.
