O Christmas Tree....

So many ideas and not enough time....... My head is full of ideas for Christmas cards but time is not on my side again :(
I have been struggling with digi images lately and the lines smudging when I colour with my Polychromo pencils.  The only thing I have changed is the card stock so I asked Uncle Google for some advice and the suggestion was to spray the image with a fixative before colouring it.   A cheaper alternative that was suggested as a fine spray of hair spray .............. well it seems to be working!

Here is the card that I experimented with yesterday..... The image is from Sassy Cheryls and is called Max's Charlie Brown Tree
The picture is not very good as it was getting late and ended up taking the photo in artificial light.

Coloured with Polychromo pencils blended with Sansador.
Sentiment - Computer generated.
Twine - from stash
