Crafty Moments site out of the UK. Vince amazingly offers all his sketches and colorized versions for free! Check out his recent Christmas images [I love the American Gothic Snowmen!] as well as several great Steampunk ones that really amuse me!
Want to know a secret? I think some of Vince's freebies are better than some I've seen that the artists are charging for! Needless to say, I follow Crafty Moments daily so I don't miss a single one!
The image was colored with Copics and mounted on the red and white DP from Basic Grey, matted with the white CS left over from the A2 base card and then elevated with foam tape on a 2nd set of the same DP& CS. The same method was used for the sentiment. Red ribbon and a red Candi [colored with a red Copic to match] balanced out the composition for me.
