At the Christmas party hop!
Welcome back to Ellen Hutson’s annual 12 Tags of Christmas party! Today’s carol was my sister’s favorite when we were growing up — I gotta ask her if she still sings it non-stop like she used to!
This tag came together super quick and yeah I was giggling the whole time I made it! You see that cutie chipmonk and raccoon from Backyard Party just popped right into my head!
Now for a bit about coloring those two critters — they both use a combo of ultramarine blue + transparent red oxide! These are my go-to colors for critters of all shapes and sizes. Pro tip: Note that you can use burnt sienna too if ya don’t have transparent red oxide.
Just adjust the amount of brown/blue to get it to your liking! You can use the same colors for the shading, too.
