Snow Happy


This is another of the Colorado Craft Company's release which features the illustrations of Anita Jeram. If you are not sure who Anita Jeram is, she is a British born author and illustrator of children's picture books. The minute you see one of her books you will remember her.

I do love her illustrations and am thrilled that they have been brought to life by Colorado Craft Company for stampers to enjoy. Yesterday I showed you Christmas Tree Cat and today I am sharing Snow Happy.
It just does not get much cuter than this. 

In my mini Misti I stamped the image using VersaFine Clair ink in Pinecone, which is a deep brown, on Arches 140lb cold press watercolour paper. As I am using watercolour I do not have to heat set the image. I decided to use colours that are in my Daniel Smith Half Pan Ultimate Mixing Set.

I used Jane's Gray for the bunny and Cerulean Blue for the background. For the deer I used Geothite (brown ochre), Burnt Sienna and Indian Red. For the tree I used Burnt Sienna along with Raw Umber, and for the leaves I made a mix of Phthalo Green (BS) and Hansa Yellow Medium giving me a pretty green. For the markings on the deer I used Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleedproof White watercolour and I used it on the snow as well.

When all was dry I attached the watercolour panel to a mat of Gina K Designs Blue Raspberry cardstock. I had the Penny Black Creative Curves die sitting on my desk and decided I would cut it in half and use it for the background. I glued it to my Gina K Design cardbase using Nuvo Adhesive.

To finish up I added Nuvo Jewel Drops in Sea Breeze around the watercolour panel and stamped the tiny sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Blue Belle.

Another image I love and I loved working with as well. Thank you all for visiting me today.
