I know it's a bit soon for this, but happy holidays everyone!  This is my traditional holiday picture that will be used on my greeting cards this year. The original is quite large, 11"x15", on watercolor and bristol paper.  This piece was created with watercolor pencil, watercolors, india ink, white acrylic paint, colored pencil and now features Swarovski crystals in the center of the pointsetta trim along the hem of the skirt.  I added them afterwards since the crystals don't really scan in very well..  Still, the scan doesn't quite do this piece justice.
