Christmas rush and mass production!

Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today to share some inspiration! Christmas is really just around the corner, and if you're like me, well you are late as regards cards... So I thought I would show you how I make "mass-production" cards ;)!

First I chose a cute image I love, Holly by Tiddly Inks. I cropped it to match the size of card I wanted (I wanted my image to be like an ATC) and added a digital sentiment by Tiddly Inks too, then reproduced my "image" 8 times on an A4 sheet. 

I started colouring the skin of all my characters using E000, 00, 04, 11 - colouring everything that has to be the same colour saves you time too since you don't have to change and look for markers all the time :)

Next I coloured the dress and thought I would make little differences, so I made some red (C7, R35, 37, 39), others blue (B02, 04, 06, 37), purple (V09, 15, 17) or orange (R35, Y15, YR16, 18). 

I then coloured the holly on all my images, then the hair - here 2 different colours, black (100, BV04, C7, 9) and brown (E25, 31, 59). Again I coloured all the black hair then all the brown instead of working one image after the other :)

And here is the set of images...

And my tiny cards, with a very simple layout - just a piece of DP behind my image. I may add pearls or dots but decided to leave them like that for now.

Blue: B02, 04, 06, 37

Red: C7, R35, 37, 39

Orange: R35, Y15, YR16, 18

Purple: V09, 15, 17

And for all the girls:
Skin: E000, 00, 04, 11
Brown Hair: E25, 31, 59
Black Hair: 100, BV04, C7, 9
Holly: BG09, YG01, 03, 17

That's all from me today! Thank you very much for your visit and good luck with your Christmas cards! Hugs,
Delphine xx
