Here's mine:

And I was so good this week, I picked out my paper first and then co-ordinated the colouring accordingly - normally I merrily colour my image then pull my hair out struggling to find an appropriate paper!  I feel a New Years Resolution a brewing!!!

Copics Used:
 B91, B93, B95, B97, B99 oh and B0000 and B000 for snowman with a touch of grey to help with the shadows.
Make it Crafty snowflake chippies were covered in white ink then Copic'd to match!

Wow! Wow! And wow! Your coloring is soooo amazing!

Christy Beans said...

Great color combo! I like those interesting snowflakes you've used and the way you colored them to match! As for coloring first, paper-picking later, I learned that lesson. I never seem to have quite the right shade of this color or that in my papers if I color first. Frustrating! So now I have an idea what color range I want, look for papers, then tweak my color choices. Even though it still takes time to go through my papers, it's happier time! Plus,I run into other paper combos that spark new ideas. Fun!
