I have a DT project to share with you today for the latest challenge over at the Mari Ko Creations Challenge Blog. The theme for this challenge is winter blues.
I started by printing out the Mrs Snowman digi onto some alcohol marker friendly paper. This digi was recently offered as a freebie in the Mari Ko Creations Facebook page. Once I’d printed her out I coloured her with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers, along with Yosoo alcohol markers. I went blue for her hat and scarf, with yellow-orange tones for the flowers, orange for the carrot nose, and soft pink for the hearts. I added shading to the white areas using my lightest grey. After completing the colouring I used a Lawn Fawn Stitched Oval die to cut it out.
Next I moved on to my card base. I created a blue card base and white heat embossed a sentiment as well as a variety of snowflakes across it. I also added some white dots of gel pen to give the impression of even smaller snowflakes. The snowflakes I used are from The Cat’s Pajamas Penguin Christmas stamp set, and the sentiment is from Pink and Main’s Snow Globe.
