  • Christmas Angel

    Seeing all the beautiful Christmas cards people have been making out there, I thought it was maybe time I put my newly learned skills to use making some Christmas cards to send to my friends. With that in mind, I set about drawing a Christmas Angel.

    Christmas Angel - Painted

    I drew her using pencil, then coloured her using a combination of Caran d’ache watercolour pencils, acrylic paint, a Sakura Pen-touch marker and a Uniball eye pen. When she was completed I scanned her into the computer to add a digital background.

    Christmas Angel - Completed

    I created the background using a blend of two of the stencil backgrounds I made last week together with a star brush.

    Lastly I took the image, added a digital ‘Happy Christmas’ down the left hand side and created a printable Christmas card.

    Finished cards

    They’re all winging their way through the postal system at this moment and will hopefully arrive in time for Christmas!

    The other day I downloaded the latest free ebook from Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine and was inspired by Lisa Engelbrecht to create this.

    I hand drew the letters in pencil, then coloured them using Derwent Inktense pencils and outlined them using Stabilo point 88 pens. After I scanned the image into the computer, I tried out lots of different coloured backgrounds, but decided I preferred the original or plain black.

    Which do you prefer?
