I figured since coloring books are BIG right now, the stores would also be flooded with coloring Christmas cards.
I was wrong. I searched and searched and only found two sets, neither of which were what I was looking for.
So, I decided to design my own.
Here's how that went down (note: I am only posting the highlight versions, there were many in between each of the drawings posted):
I used an online graphics manipulator to turn them into a line drawing so I could get the placement.
First try at hand-drawn embellishment
Pencil embellishment on top of the digital fills
Colored with markers. I liked it a lot. But I decided that digital fills were wrong for Folk Art, so I went back to the literal drawing board
BTW- each of these steps involved multiple printouts (and by *multiple*, I mean I probably printed out 45 different versions of the card). I used a LOT of ink over the weekend.
Time to try coloring again:
I could keep changing and tweaking, but really, the drawing is done. I am going to send this out, uncolored, as my Christmas card this year. But you all can download and color the page if you like. Please, for your own use only, no resales or commercial use.
