Winter Wolf

     I got an early start on the weekend yesterday when it turned out that we had the afternoon off and, as I promised myself, I'm doing all crafting and no housework for the next two days.  I need the wind down and re-energizing time.

     The first thing I did was to look through my folder of already colored images and I found this gorgeous wolf which hadn't been colored!  It just appealed to me so I dug out the polychromos pencils and the ProMarkers and started coloring.

     Unfortunately, I hadn't put the artist's name on the back of the image so I can't tell you who drew it but I think it's magnificent.  If you recognize it, please let me know.  I'd love to edit this post and give the artist full credit.


     I haven't yet decided if it's going to be a Christmas birthday card or just a Christmas card (I have one or two of those among my family and friends) but I definitely gave it a winter feel with the slate and blue CS layers plus the snowflakes.  After I finished coloring the wolf, I cut it with a stitched rectangle die from Die-namics.  I also cut the slate blue CS with dies from that same set before layering in the wolf.

     I found deep blue CS for the card front, wrapped it with silver ribbon, and then added the image piece.  I die cut the snowflakes with a set from Art Impressions and added them along the borders of the image. Finally, I hand tied a bow using the same silver ribbon.  I think this will make a great masculine card.
