1. Friday Sketchers sketch challenge #74 (Thanks, Carole, for the great sketch!)
2. Peachy Keen Stamps challenge #13 - Use Blue and Purple ; Use a stamped image; Must include at least 3 snowflakes (can be more); Must include a Greeting. I love these multi challenges...!
All stamps are from Heartfelt Creations - this is Chickadee Surprise and God Bless border (full sentiment is God Bless You on your Birthday...but...I cut it in half, and then only used part of it!)
I colored my little girl with Neopiko markers - didn't anticipate how they would work on a semi-glossy tag, and wasn't really happy with the streaking, but a little pencil shading and texturing with their blender pen made it better. Her hood is covered with Ivory Flower-Soft. I masked some hills of snow with a torn paper edge, and then went along the lines with glitter to highlight the snow.
For the snowflake trails I pierced along a flourish template (really technical...I printed it on the computer, traced onto a clear envelope, then pierced holes along the lines) and connected the dots with hand-stitching. I think the dimensional snowflake was from Jolee's...not sure. The falling snow is just small dots of acrylic paint, applied with a small stylus.
