I had so much fun playing with this snowman rosette ornament! It was like being a little girl again playing with stamps, ink, glue, glitter paper, feathers, scissors, and of course my copic markers (didn't have those as a girl..LOL) This image is so much fun to color and not hard at all. Note that I shaded the sides of the scarfs to make the scarf look like it was curved and not flat. Does it look like the middle of the scarf is closer to you. That is done with highlighting and shading. The snowmen are also shaded with W1 gray marker. Hmmm glitter may have been fun on them too you might want to try that!

I posted this card last week, but wanted to share the different color combinations that I came up with to show the versatility of this Image... I just love her! What is your favorite color combination!
Today I am show casing an image that I love to use for several different occasions... By changing the color scheme or embellishments on the card, you can make an Easter Image a Christmas Image, or Birthday Image etc.... This is a way to stretch the usability of each stamp! Love that!

The challenge for the Penny Black Blog is Green and trees.. Here are two cards that were projects in this month's classes... Very fitting so I thought I would post them here... Be sure to check out the challenge for more exciting card ideas! HERE
Did you check out those Spider Web Eggs.... What a kick! This image is totally fun and extremely versatile... I mean, cupcakes are great for any celebration ... right? Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Easter, Graduation, Bday, thank you, new baby, oh my can't think of any day that a cupcake is not welcome! Here is the original card!
YIKES.. it's past time to update my calendar! My goodness.. but I have been busy creating creating and creating....... Amazingly, I have had lots of time to create this month and just color "Extra" things! (surprising how much you can accomplish when you give up house cleaning! LOL)
This is a repost from last fall... I am thinking of doing this card at SMS next month for a quiet break from the holiday buzz.... what do you think? (and maybe roses). This time of year I love Carmel Apple Cider... and apple pie so thought it would be fitting.
I LOVE this image. It was so fun to color. I was sitting at the car dealer waiting for my car to get fixed (something in the steering column) and had plenty of time to color. I didnt have the right colors for the inside of my apple and ended up redoing them after I got home (cut and paste) I love the E50's for my apple centers and cant wait to do it again without cut and pasting... isn't paper crafting perfect... if ya boo boo you just cover it up! In this image, I used more gray rather than a brighter colors to shade and shadow.
At the Intermediate Certification we talked about shading with grays or colors with more gray in them. Here I used more gray rather than a more intense color as I had previously used. This way of shading makes more sense to me than just using a more intense color. IE: when shading use the same color Plus 10 in grayness (first number) and 2 in brightness (second number). For Example for R27 I would shade with R39. If you don't have a color that is darker then try adding a bit of gray to your image. Note I also added some Yellow in both my red and green apples. I took a look at a real apple and it had green and yellow in the red so I thought i would give it a try. It worked - it is so amazing what ya can do with Copic Markers....

Okay, now is this the sweetest little image or what! I just love her. I have owned this stamp for almost two years and have never ever had a chance to take her out of the package! Finally, and it was worth the wait. In this image you can see that I used the light from the candle as my light source. I highlighted the front of her hat and nightie as well as her face. Note the sky is also darker behind her than it is in front.
