White and Silver Snowy

When I started to colour “Snowy” by Penny Black, my intention was to colour his hat and scarf, add rosy cheeks and use bright Christmas themed papers. I had my BG10 Copics marker out that I use a lot to add dimension to whites (I usually always do this last), next I coloured his nose and put the image aside. A week later I decided I would finish the colouring, but after looking at it, I loved the simplicity so I left it as is. Next I fussy cut him out, and popped his up on a snowflake diecut silver background and added it to the card front. The die is from Impression Obsessions called Snowflake Background. I double stamped the sentiment using a stamp from Avery Elle’s – Let it Snow.
