Hi everyone! Today I am sharing a card on which I coloured a winter background.
The image I used is Oddball Snowman from Stamping Bella.
First I added some shading to the snowman with BV01, N1 and 0
Tree: G24, YG06, YG03
Carrot: YR12, YR16, YR18
Arms and tree: E31, E33, E35
Hat and gloves: N3, N5, N7
Bell: Y13, Y17
Hat and scarf: R43, R24, R46
On the background:
Colours: B23, B24, B26, B32, BV02
First I marked where I wanted to start the background, using N1
Taking the B32 I used a flicking motion to add colour upwards, starting from where I marked it with the N1.
Next I added B23, upwards from the N1 and downwards from the top of the paper.
I applied some BV02
In turn, each time using a darker colour,
I kept adding more depth until I was happy with the shading, also adding some BV02
Using N1, N3 and 0 I shaded the ground.
Cut the image down to size, mat it, and pop on the front of a card base.
You can also add snow by applying some white gel pen, if desired.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you enjoyed this tutorial
