Christmas Spirit


The challenge at Christmas Kickstart this time is 
Christmas Cheer AKA Alcohol!
I love the images from Bugaboo and having coloured this one I wondered what sentiment I should add, I thought that this one seemed somewhat appropriate!
When making computer generated sentiments, I try to match the weight of the font to the line of the image and the character of the subject matter. Here I used  Mahoni Free. I set my computer to see the page at 105% which makes the image I see on screen, the same size as a sheet of A4  (the size card I cut my card bases from). SO having coloured and cut out my image, I can hold it up against the screen of my computer and see if I like the placement and move the text around in text boxes to fit. All very technical ... NOT! But it works.
Stay well everyone!
