Hi everyone! Another week has flown by and I hope you are doing well. I’m the sketch hostess this week over at Freshly Made Sketches. There are lots of ways to go with this one but I had a specific stamp set in mind.
My friend Linda Callahan sent me this stamp set from Colorado Craft Company (Snowmen and Bunnies) and I finally got a chance to use it. This sketch is PERFECT for the images. I stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and got to coloring with my Copic Markers. The first thing I did was put a base layer on the dark blue background (B37) to help me judge the rest of the color depth.
I played with the concept of coloring “white” for the snowman. Using a base of my Toner Grays (T2, T1, T0), I added a pale purple to give it a little more of an icy depth. Pretty happy with the result and this larger image is the perfect place to play with shading. After I finished the coloring, I masked the border around the image and then splattered on some Gouache to mimic snow. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and pretty much sums up the weather we have been having in Virginia lately. I actually love snow (when I don’t have to drive or fly in it).
I hope you will come over and join the fun this week. Our team has created beautiful projects, as always, so make sure to leave them some love. Thanks for stopping in. See you soon!

I haven’t see a snowman or his lady friend I haven’t liked; your tutorial is great; happy travels!
Oh this is just too cute for words! I love that sweet snowman and his little bunny! Your colouring is spectacular as always! I will try and remind myself that I need to celebrate winter and not just wish it was over because I’m so cold!!!
I love how you used copics here, for the background – it looks fabulous.
That is the CUTEST image!! And the sentiment is absolutely perfect!
What a fun image. And made better only by your awesome coloring. 🙂
What a great image to use for this sketch and your coloring skills are fabulous! I just love the “snow” you created on that blue background. Super cute card!
Wow! This is delightful! This image is so cute and I’m totally wowed by your coloring job!
Your Copic colouring on this gorgeous image is fabulous – the shading on your snowman is so realistic. It’s so nice to have a bit of real estate to play around with shading.
