This little 'caroling' girl came with a Chrismtas set, though she does not have a single element on her to identify her with the season. Apparently children are not expected to sing at other times of the year!
I created three cards with her colored in alcohol markers. The first uses a not-traditional color palette of gold and coral pink. I used a diecut for the feature and added a thin border of shimmer coral. What a miracle when I found this gradient dot in one of my recently used 6 x 6 pads. The color was perfect! I just added a golden strip and a gold foil greeting.
The next coloring moves more toward the traditional but with a touch of lime in the green and a touch of orange in thered. Very close to fall colors so maybe she is caroling for Halloween. This coloring allowed me to use these variants in the background as well and I even used a mint green in the bordering. I finished this one with a gold peel-off greeting.
Yes, I finally did go strictly traditional in coloring: Christmas red and Christmas green. All the bordering is srtaight-up red and I even found an old paper that was red and green plaid. A red foil greeting with an antique font is the finisher.
THAT should appease the traditionalists!
