Snowy Birthday


Hi There,

Sharing a birthday card using the image called “Bearing Gifts” – Art By Barb. There is currently a colouring contest on their Facebook page.

I coloured the image using my copic markers and then added in the night sky and used Sharpie Water Based Paint – White – Extra Fine Point to create the falling snow.

On the bottom of the image, I used Recollections – Christmas Noel and added some glitter to the snow while it was still wet.

On the hats, added in some glitter and tinsel from American Craft.

Outlined image, gift box and card with Pilot Silver Marker.

Sentiment is from Woodland Cottage – Scenic Stamps.

Background paper is from American Crafts – Jack Frost Paper Pad – 6 x 6 in (15.2 x 15.2 cm). Loved how the paper matched the scene so well.

Used My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out to cut the gift box.

Hope you like it!

Kit and Clowder – November 2016 Markers Class


Hi There,

Sharing with you my finished Christmas card after completing the November Markers class from Kit and Clowder. Image is called “North Pole” by Polkadoodles.

For this project I used all Copic markers. Alyce from Kit and Clowder also teaches you how to use alternative markers as well. Which I really love, since I also have the full Spectrum Noir collection.

I had a lot of fun doing this class as it taught me a lot of new techniques. I especially loved learning how to colour the snow as I love making wintery scened Christmas cards. 🙂

Also, loved learning how to do the sky.

To frame the image I used Craftin Desert Diva’s Fancy Frames. One of my all time favourites. Then used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mermaid Lagoon to go around the border to deepen the colour.

Added in a little glitter to the snowy roofs and snow on the ground, just because I love sparkle. LOL!

Hope you like it!
