Can you believe that 2011 is almost here??!! This will be my very last post for 2010. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday enjoying time with family and friends.
You may even be on a Ski vacation like our friend Ski Bunny Trevor, who is on the slopes sporting his new Christmas attire. Santa was very good to him and his Grandma knit him a cozy sweater with a matching scarf to keep him warm. This stamp is just the cutest and quickest to bring to life. I've had him coloured for quite a while just itchin' to put him to paper.
I used the following Copics to colour my image:
Skin: R00; R20 Sweater: R14; R24; R35; R39 Pants & Hat: B000; B01; B06; BG45; BG72
Hair: Y23; Y26; Y28; YR24 Boots, Gloves, Shading, Scarf, Skis: B39; B37; BG72; C4; C7
I had some trees colored and cut out from a previous project and used them to create a winter wonderland scene by applying white glue and sprinkling Art Institute - Frost Ultrafine Glitter
to give the snow some sparkle.
Instead of using my Spellbinders "Labels Eight" to cut out the image, I used a trimmed negative for a frame, matted it with red cardstock and punched an MS Border Punch down the right hand side. This was all mounted on paper from 6" x 6" double-sided paperpad from Webster's "Santa/Sweet Season" and then put on a black card base. Another tree and two snowflakes joined together with a Rhinestone were popped onto the frame with foam dimensionals.
Hope you enjoyed my little card as much as I had fun making it.
