SBS DT: Hot Hot Christmas

Hi Everyone.

I'm a little behind on posting through blogland but I have posted these a few days ago (Saturday 15th) on facebook though the SBS fan page, Kit  & Clowder and Digi galore. So if you have seen these I hope I don't bore you with the same stuff. LOL Just wanted to share a little bit of the process that goes in the way I made my cards.
So here we go. Were to use some Summer 1950's styled beach babes and turn them into Christmas cards. You can buy them singular or you can buy the bundle and I'll share the links with you.

So here is the bundle (4 images and sentiments):  http://simplybstamps.net/item_3000/Summer-Babes-Digi-Bundle.htm

So now to the image I used for the first card:
Summer Time Betty here's the link:  http://simplybstamps.net/item_3004/Summer-Time-Betty-Digi.htm

 I used Copic markers to color her up. 
I also drew my own background and lined it with a Copic multiliner to give it that 
Christmas in the Caribbean/Central America, Hawaii,
or Florida. LOL Anywhere but where I'm at now... where it's co-co-co-cold.
Don't get me wrong I do love to go see the snow and make real snowmen and snow angels and what not... I just can't deal with cold for too long.


This one is Anne '50's Summer Beauty and here's the link: http://simplybstamps.net/item_3002/Anne-50s-Summer-Beauty-Digi.htm
 Same as the previous image I drew my own background except the palm tree... I did add the string or Christmas lights though. This was inspired by Sandy Allnock's Snoopy Video
I used some different colors because I didn't have what she had but the technique was all her idea.
Here's a little process video on Youtube.

Thank you for visiting.
