Dark Noel

This is my entry for :iconbnspyrd:s Dark X-mas mini contest. A quote from the contest theme: "Not all Christmases are happy, joyous and inviting, some can be quite stressful, dark and sombre events."

When I thought of what would be a dark and sad Christmas all i could think of was to have lost someone that would have made every christmas so special.

Technically I wanted this to feel like it was painted or printed on a an old piece of paper, like a memory of someone a long time ago.

Hope you like, despite being quite emotional and sad :heart:

Thank you so much to the fab stockers:
:iconbnspyrd: for the border: and
:iconelandria: for the model:
:iconsteppelandstock: for the hollies:… and…

Thank you very much :hug:
I like your lovely and uplifting idea here as well as your art. A lot of us see dark Christmases as abusive and rage-filled events, or at the very least a screamingly miserable day with loud racist uncles, intrusive grandmothers, and screaming brats.

(Me? Ours only had Dad in a touchy temper and inclined to bully Mom verbally; compared to a lot of my friends, I was lucky.)
