Copic Creations Challenge #17

Happy December 1. It's time for our 17th Copic Creations Challenge and this Challenge is bringing you snow and more specifically, snowmen. The DT has come up with the cutest snowmen and snow pictures to get you in the spirit of winter, holidays and all the warm fuzzy thoughts and feelings that go along with this time of year. My little duo is from Whimsie Doodles. It is a digi-stamp called Snow Friends. My snowmen were colored with N1 and R0000 for the pink one. I colored both of those in along the edge and used my colorless blender to pull the colors towards the middle. For the "blue" one I used N1 and BG10 and did the same thing. My trees were first colored in YG13 and G28, and then lightly sponged with Always Artichoke and Certain Celery. The scarves were done with RV10,11,& 14 and BG10 and 72. The tree trunks were colored at the base with E44 and then I blended my greens into that as I went up the tree trunk. It's such a simple image but I loved it when I saw it - I do love the look of whimsical images , and I like what they have to offer. My DP is Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses and the sentiment is from PTI's "Made of Snow." I hope you can take a moment and look at the cute snowy cards the girls have done for this challenge. Then if you can, play along. Our sponsor for this challenge is Whipper Snapper. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful week.
