Back again with the July 15 Oozak Challenge Blog, where we are doing "Anything goes with TEXTURE!"
I made this--
I have had Christmas cards on my mind lately, so I dove in with a wonderful stamp from Stampendous, and grabbed my Copics for these sweet snowmen.
I started with some Baja Breeze cardstock and layered some snowflake paper from My Mind's Eye that I passed through a snowflake embossing folder. To that, I added a layer of green cardstock, embossed with a different embossing folder from Sizzix. Then I got to work on my snowmen.
I love coloring white things with Copics. I know that sounds weird, but the presence of color on a white image actually makes the white look so much better, and gives all kinds of depth. My favorite thing though, was those cute little carrot noses. I had to highlight them even more by applying some Glossy Accents. Oh, and a tiny little snowflake, too!
Now, I am no great shakes with blending Copics, but I think this turned out pretty well. I had fun, at any rate! (Run over to Oozak and see the amazingly discounted prices on Copics, and SO many other things!)
The scarf is paper pieced and popped up on foam adhesive, as is the fur part of their hats. Those have a great fluffy coating of Fun Flock, too, and I am MAD about that part!
I did the sentiment on vellum with black embossing powder. I used a dimensional Glue Dot, cut into pieces, to attach it, and I realized after I took the photo that you could really see one of the pieces. I simply moved it behind the word "Warm", and it pretty much vanished! Cool!
Add some vellum and rhinestone snowflakes, and you're done!
So, there's TWO Christmas cards so far (See #1 HERE). Sixty something (or more) to go...Don't worry, they'll get simpler as we get closer to mail date. I'm not THAT much of a masochist!
Thanks for stopping by!
