Christmas Wishes

Here is another of Judith Maslen's great patterns - and yet one more to add to my 'Christmas cards done' pile.
With Judith's encouragement I have purchased a new pen called a Rotring Isograph. This isn't a new new pen - just new to me. The nib - for want of a better word - is incredibly fine at 0.18 and it is taking some getting used to - hence this pattern which calls for white pen and ink work. A little wobbly around the holly leaves but hopefully it will get better with practice.
The colouring - on the back - has been done with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. Back in my comfort zone. No felt tips unless I am told to use them!!
