I can't believe that the possibility of snow is on the forecast for later this week. I'm in full denial. Maybe, just maybe, a little winter themed stamping will get me in the spirit? Lets hope!!
This adorable striped patterned paper reminded me of Hannah Anderson clothes, oh, how I loved dressing my boys in those pj's when they were littler.
Today I've got a preview of a new set called "Cool Yule" and I adore all the sweet little polar companions in this set. (even, if I'm not a fan of arctic temps!)
I stamped the image of the frozen pond to a piece of patterned paper and then colored the pond a few shades darker with my Copic marker. Now, you won't get the best results with your Copic markers on patterned paper, but since I wasn't going for fine detail, it was just fine. Then I coated the pond with Diamond Glaze and set it aside to dry (overnight....) Meanwhile I stamped my penguin to a Paper Panel, colored with copics and cut him out. I paper pieced his little hat with some coordinating designer paper.
The next day, once my Diamond Glaze had dried I reached for my chunky glass glitter which is fantastic for snowy scenes and had fun adding lots of snow to my scene. I'm fine with snow on paper, just not in my driveway!
I'm super excited to see which of the Cool Yule characters my Design Team pals played with. You'll find links to everyone that has samples today on Kim's Blog at 11am. If you're anxious (like me....) you can stalk the girls by following links on my sidebar!
Having fun this week with the previews? What's your favorite so far? Tomorrow will be the LAST of our previews! Because I still have this month's Who's That Girl and the newest MFT Kit to share with you! Seriously - how chock full of goodness is this release!!
