It's time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!
I just love these fabulous fresh sunny colors, a combo perfect for springtime, flowers or ....
Snowbuddies, to be exact! This is a preview of the Snow Much Fun set coming in the new catalog. Aren't these the cutest pair?
I do really enjoy using warm colors for snowmen, it adds a bit of surprise and fun! I used blender pens and ink to color and shade the images on white card stock. Because it's not as thick as water color paper, you have to be careful to use light pressure and not too much moisture, but I love being able to keep my white for brightness and a squeaky clean look.
I added glitter for snow, first with a two-way glue pen. Next, I added liitle mounds of Tombo Mono Multi Liquid glue and sprinkled glitter atop and left it to dry (for a LONG time!). Love the dimension this gives. As a matter of fact, there's glitter across the length of my ribbon too! A rhinestone jewel on the heart adds the final touch of bling.
As I'm writing this post, it is also rather amusing ironic that our temps are in the high 90's and I'm sweating buckets since our air conditioner quit working yesterday. Hope you are staying cool!
Make sure to check out the beautiful entries at The Paper Players, won't you play along?
