Winter Snow


I love the bear and the snowman in this set from Penny Black Stamps. And ofcourse, the Bunny is pretty darn cute as well. 

I felt this needed to be coloured with Copic markers, which for me is not as time consuming as watercolour is, and as I was a bit tight for time today, I went with the Copics.

Using Neenah cardstock and in my mini Misti I stamped the image using Memento Ink in Jet Black. I started to colour the snowman first, using:

 B000, B00 and B21 with BV25 on the stones for the mouth,
 E37 on the twig arms,
for the scarf I used YR07, YR09 and YR18,
and the nose is done with YR07 and YR68.

For the Bunny I used E11, E50, E51,
for his cheeks I used R20,
and in the ears and on the bottom of his feet. I used YR02,
with the scarf having YG07 and G14.

On the Top Hat I used BV25 and 0 Blender,
with the YG07 and G14 on the ribbon.

For the Bear I used YR24, E23, E35 and E99,
for the scarf and top part of hat I used R05 and R17, waiting a bit then applying a second layer of R17,
on the fur parts I used E40 along with a layer of Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Opal Quartz,
and for the snow on the ground I used B21 and the Opal Quartz again.

Once I was finished with all the colouring, I die cut two pieces of the Winter sentiment and coloured one with Copic B21. I added Nuvo adhesive to the blue sentiment and glued the white on top keeping the blue showing for shadowing.
(I am not sure who made the Winter die, but it is several years old.)

To do the embossing I used a very old Sizzix Embossing folder called Snow Drops, which is not around anymore and embossed the front of my card base. 
(I was sorting through embossing folders this past weekend, cleaning them out, and when I got to this one I decided it was a keeper. I very much like the way the snow falls on this folder, getting lighter towards the bottom, albeit it doesn't show as I added the panel to my card.)

I also used the embossing folder on the little scene I created, and where the snow drops fell on the animals I used my white gel pen, having it appear like snow drops, then attached the panel to my card base.

To finish I attached the Winter sentiment, again using Nuvo Adhesive.

I really like how it turned out, and I hope you do as well.
