I've always loved using a mix of reds, burnt oranges, and yellows to create a sunset background for x-mas cards. This one above uses 4 different blended inks for the background. After the colors were blended, I added the deer, and the birds. And here is one in classic red and green....a color combo I don't use often for Christmas cards, I like to use blues, purples, and pinks the most!!
The one above also incorporates 4 shades of green from light to dark. All in all, I think I'm done for the moment. :) Have a wonderful tomorrow!
