I can't believe it's day four already...the week is flying by. So for today's project I decided to pull out one of my favorite Itty Bitty images and celebrate the final weeks of winter. I love this stamp from Susan Weckesser...it's titled One of a Kind Winter:
For my card I first stamped the image onto white cardstock using Memento ink. I then pulled out my Copics and chalk and colored in the image. To mix these two mediums together you first color with your Copics, allowing the ink to fully dry. Then you add the chalk in places where you would like shadows. The great think about chalk is that if you make a mistake you simply erase it and start over. So if you make a shadow too dark or it goes outside the area you wanted, just pull out an eraser and correct it!
I then pulled out some Spellbinders dies and cut my shapes. I then used some distressed stain to edge my cardstock pieces. I ran the card base through my Grand Calibur machine with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug template to create the embossed background.
I hope you'll come back tomorrow as I share my final creation with you...and before you go...don't forget... Unity is allowing me to give away TWO Itty Bitty images to one lucky commenter this week. So be sure to come back each day and leave a comment to get you name in this drawing!
