As you know I’m doing a GDT spot for the wonderful Pion Design papers and I just love the ‘Days of Winter’ collection, I’ve chosen some pretty neutral tones and a sweet little snowman to create this pretty Christmas card:

snowy

My image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Copic Express Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: snowman: C1, C00, BG10, BG000, BG0000, W3, W1, W00, B63, B60 I added some sparkle with Stickles

For a closer look:

And another:

The neutral tones are so effective colouring just the shadow areas for a pretty effect, The fluff on his hat and scarf are created using Warm Grey Copics and a flicking motion to give texture followed by a generous coat of Stickles

One last look:
