Holly Berries

The challenge this week at Meljen's Designs is to use red and green on your project.  I am not as fond of the traditional red and green color combo, so I chose to go with a burgundy/avocado combo instead.

I used one of the recently released images, Christmas Lights Snail, and colored him with Copics.  The lights were colored with Copic Spica pens and have gorgeous sparkle to them.  Unfortunately, you just can't capture that in a picture!  I used a sketch from Taylored Expressions because I needed to jump start my mojo!  The sentiment is from the Stampin' Up! Easy Events set.  I cut the sentiments off of each of the images in the set so I could use them alone if I wanted to.
