A Christmas Story of Sorts

If you didn't know I design rubber stamps for Hambo Stamps. Our stamps are intended for many purposes but they are mostly used to make greeting cards. We also do digital images on our web site and some that don't make the cut there for various reasons are for sale on my Etsy shop. This is one of those images.

It's one of those ideas I had that I just had to draw. At first it was just going to be the two different sized stockings..... haha I'm better than you and I get more presents sort of thing. Don't know when the idea to add the age old 'and the horse you rode in on' came about but I thought it would be funny to put the horse's stocking up there too.

I thought this would be a great chance to use my Inktense pencils. They are water soluble colored pencils and as the name implies are very intense. I came back with my Prismacolors and did all of the finishing touches. I don't think I will ever be able to do a piece with a brush alone, I always feel a need to put a pencil point to the work to finish it.

Thanks for looking!!

Thanks Toni! I do like the pencils but the colors selection is kind of weird in my opinion. I have the 24 set. Also I'm not used to water coloring really so it might be me.
