Dark skies

Hi everyone, Åsa here today with some copic inspiration.

Its already September. Cant imagine how fast the summer went by.
So - have you started on your Christmas cards yet?

I know - still lots of time.
But I have started, just a little bit.



I have used papers from Maja Design - Vintage Frost Basic, and colored all the edges with Distress Ink.

When I have an image that includes lot of "white spaces", as in snow etc, I tend to choose to colour the sky dark. I think it gives the image more effect. Otherwise it tends to make everything blends into each other, As in this cute little image from Wee Stamps, with lots of snow and polar bears.


I have used the following colours:

Sky: B99-97-95-93
Snow: N4-2-1-0-B000-0000-Blender
Polar bear: T6-4-3-1-0
Present: R59-37-35/BG95-93-91

The stars are made with an white ink pen.


I dont know if you can see it in the picture, but its all sprayed with Glimmer Mist to make it sparkle and shine.

Hope you like it. Have a wonderful week.
