I am getting this challenge in under the wire this week! Been busy at home & work lately so I have been running short on time.
This weeks image really got me thinking about winter & Christmas! Before you know it ~ the snow will be falling and the Christmas season will be upon us. Faith brought us this adorable snowman that I couldn’t wait to play with. And the challenge over @ Double Delight was to make your own embellishments. So much fun : )
I colored the scarf & heart using Copic markers (still getting the hang of those yet) and very, very softly colored in the inside edges of the snowman w/gray watercolor pencil to give him a bit of a shadow effect. I used my flocking for the snow beneath him and a red gelly roll pen for the holly berries. I then painted a little CI Paints Pink Highlights over top of the scarf to make it look shimmery. My handmade embellishments was the 2 snowflakes that I punched out and used the Pink Highlights paint again on 1, the other I used the Amethyst. I then used my I-Rock to give him his buttons and the center to my snowflake. I used a sheer white ribbon, and put a thinner blue ribbon thru my Create-a-Sticker and then put it on top of the sheer ribbon. “Hand stamped” my blue background for my caption and popped it up on a purple scallop that I pierced on the edges.
The picture below shows the shimmer from the CI paints – JUST LOVE THAT STUFF!!!
Not the best picture ~ but you get the idea. Well, very tired and lots to do before I go to bed yet. Hope you ladies like it!!
Till next time
