Good morning crafty friends and happy Fourth of July to those the are in the US! Today we celebrate Christmas in July over at the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog. For my holiday-inspired project, I created a wintery scene featuring Candycane image by LeAnn’s World 101, found here.
I printed my image to fit a standard A2 size panel and set it in the foreground. Next, I created the background using Copic Markers. Whenever I create a card with this much detail, I typically work on the background first. This way, if I don’t like the background, I have not spent any time coloring the main image.
Copic Color Combination
Sky: B91, B00, BG000, BG0000
Mountain: E70, E000, E0000, B60, BG0000, B000, B0000
Trees: G82, G94, G99, BG99
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20, R30
Hair: E29, E27, E25, E23, E21
Outfit: RV17, RV55, RV52, RV00
Black: C7, C5, C3
White: C3, C1, C00
Holly Leaves and Berries: YG17, YG06, YG00, R39, R27
Ground Snow: B00, B000, B0000
White Gel Pen for snow
I stamped the large scripty sentiment and used a white gel pen to add falling snow across the entire card front.
To complete my card, I trimmed the panel using a stitched rectangle die slightly smaller than A2 size card. I added a pink mat to a side folding card base then added my main panel with liquid adhesive.
