Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today to share some Christmas inspiration, with a simple winter scene. For my scene, I used a Penny Black stamp from the Festive Frolic set. I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black then die cut it with a Lawn Fawn die to be able to frame my image and visualize my scene.
I started with the sky, drawing the limit / hill in BG000. For a change, I went for a pastel orangy sky inspired by sky colours at sunset. I coloured from left to right and right to left making horizontal lines in BG000, V000 and YR000.
For a bit of interest, I added trees behind my hill line. I coloured from dark to light, "drawing" pine needles in G29, then blending a bit using YG17 and a bit of YG03. For the trees further in the distance, I skipped the G29. At last, I also used BV000 to add a "horizon" in the distance.
I then coloured the bear in Warm Greys - W0, 1, 3, 5 - and R20. I "drew" the hair from the fur going from dark to light.
Next I coloured the little penguin and sleigh (see colours below).
I then focussed on the details, you know the details that make a difference ;), adding marks in the snow, a shadow under the bear, and colouring some of the white of the hill using B000 and V20.
As a final step, I added snow in the trees and snowflakes using a Molotow acrylic paint marker.
Here is the final image, with a sentiment.
