I hope I can brighten your day with this snowman card. I have pink and purple with a touch of silver shine for you today.
I’ve been colouring this snowman with in traditional colours and Stampin’ Up!’s Stampin’ Blends, but today I thought I’d mix things up a little!
This time, I’ve added colour with my Watercolour Pencils (set 1) and a Blender Pen. It’s a much faster colouring technique than the Blends, especially if you have lots to make up with a little time.
The colours in this Watercolour Pencils pack are; Basic Black, Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White
A Blender Pen is a clever pen which acts like a paintbrush, with a clear specialised solution inside which smooths your watercolour pencil lines out.
You just add colour with your watercolour pencil, then go over with a Blender Pen. It doesn’t make your paper wet, it’s a very simple colouring technique!
TOP TIP – Make sure you remove any excess colour which is in the brush onto your grid paper (scrap paper). The brush has to run clear, it’s very quick and easy to do. You do this to prevent mixing your colours.
How to create this look
- Choose three different patterns from the Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ pack.
- Cut a piece from each to measure to 3.5″ x 1.75″
- Add Seal double-sided tape to glue these onto a piece of Blushing Bride (pale pink) cardstock.
- I didn’t cut this to size beforehand, I started with a larger piece of Blushing Bride cardstock, then trimmed it to size with my paper trimmer.
- Then you can glue this to the Rich Razzleberry (purple) card base.
