Merry and BRIGHT!

Hi everyone.  I wasn't kidding with the title. :)  This is the brightest Christmas card I've ever made. :)  It may be a little over the top, but the snowman looks happy with his rainbow scarf and hat.  This is for Merry Monday Challenge # 262 - Gift(s).


Stamped the image in archival black ink and used zigs to colour.  Add some soft blue sponging for the sky and splattered with white acrylic paint for snow ... that's a little hard to see in the photo.  Finished by stamping the sentiment and adding a little bit of clear Wink of Stella along the lines of the snow drifts.  Easy, peasy card to make.  :)






Stamps:  Sweet Snowman (Penny Black); Big Christmas Wishes (Amy R - retired)
Paper:  Mixed Media paper (Strathmore 140 lb.)
Ink:  Archival Black (Ranger); zigs
Accessories & Tools:  water brush, sponges, paint brush for splattering, white acrylic paint, clear Wink of Stella

  12. You can do any range of color hues, Lolly, but you should try eye-popping bold rainbow delights more often! It might be the brightest Christmas card you've ever made, but that is the happiest snowman I have ever seen! Hugs, Dolly

  16. Your card is very different from your standard, but it's beautiful, Loll! I love the rainbow scarf, in winter you will not find a rainbow in the sky, so it's a great alternative :-)) I also like how you shaded the area behind a snowman. You see also gently falling snow. All this makes the card unique.
    Hugs,
