Hi Peeps! Christmas is almost here and I am so excited! Here is a card I made using my Snowman and Penguins digi stamp image. I am happy with how this one turned out!
This was my first time using Zoe's paper from her store, "Make It Crafty". The paper is one she discovered for Copic users and it is called, "Make It Crafty Blending Card". I want to say ahead of my next statement, that I get zero compensation for plugging her product. Now Copic lovers, hear me.... THIS PAPER IS THE BEST I HAVE EVER TRIED FOR BLENDING COPIC COLOURS!!!!! It is a dream to work with -- I have NEVER seen the Blender pen work like this before -- oh the joy of seeing the effects with this paper -- if you have never tried it before, please go to her store and get some NOW!!! You will not be sorry!! It is now my new staple to go with Copics. I can't believe Zoe found this paper-- I always knew she was a sweet heart AND super smart AND super creative. Well it seems she has reached genius level with the discovery of this paper!!! Oh I can't say enough about it.
sigh... I am in paper heaven now... ha ha ha ha
The die cuts are Ann's own Elegant Flourishes and I love using them! I painted the edges with a gold automotive paint loaned from hubby. It actually works a lot better than the gold crafting paint I was using!
I coloured the image with the following Copics:
B0000, 21, 32, 34, 63
C0, 2, 3, 4, 5
RV21 on his cheeks
Now you see the sky and the snow and how I kind of melded the two into each other in a unique way, with no line of demarcation? That's the beauty of this paper from Make It Crafty. I could not have done that with any other paper I use! What a joy to work with this stuff!!

I messed up the pink on the penguins' cheeks and so I blended it out and then went over it with a pink Prisma pencil crayon :-p . I also used a grey Prisma pencil crayon to touch up the black parts of the penguin to get a smoother gradation. Here's your close-up:
