Hi everyone! Welcome to the MarkerPop Tina Wenke blog hop! I decided to make an extra special project for my 25 Days of Christmas Day 7 since it was also for my hop project.
I used this super duper adorable Tina Wenke image called, “Making Snow Angels”. I have used a number of Tina Wenke images for my Copic coloring & I really find them so much fun to color! This one was definitely fun to color!
I used the follow Copic colors:
- For the skin: E000, E00, E21, E02
- For the hair: E49
- For the boots/scarf: E70, E71, E74, E79
- For the reds: E24, E27, E29
- For the greens: YG21, YG23, YG25
- For the snow: BG0000, BG000, BG01
- For the jeans: B93, B95, B97, B99
- For the white on the hat: W0
I wanted to do something extra special with the colored image so I added some snow/ice looking goodies. For the inside of the snow angel shape, I used Rock Candy Stickles. Then for the outside of the snow angel area, I used Rock Candy Crackle Paint. Both of these products are Ranger Tim Holtz products. Unfortunately, these products caused my Copic coloring to bleed! EEK! I was a little heartbroken that my coloring got messed up, but I still thought that it looked good enough to use on my project. But that leads me to my expert tip for today. . .
EXPERT TIP #7: Test, test, test!
When using a new liquid embellishment to add dimension & texture to your coloring, always test it out on a test page. Don’t make the same mistake I did and just apply whatever to your stamped image and mess up your hard work.
I made a little video so you could see the products & the Copic bleeding up close. I also wanted to warn my other Copic loving friends that this can happen.
Here’s a still shot where you can really see the Copics bleeding:
If I used these products on my copic coloring again, I am going to have to be very careful NOT to get the liquids onto my colored areas.
After the coloring was done, I matted that layer on some cardstock.
I then created some patterned paper strips I matted them onto some white cardstock. Three of the patterned papers were designed by Tina Wenke. The paper with the little houses on it is from the My Mind’s Eye Winter Wonderland 6×6 paper pad that is available at MarkerPop.
The card measures 5.5 inches square. At the bottom I stamped a sentiment from the SP & Company Filled with Cheer Emma stamp set.
The last thing I did was I added some twine from The Twinery & a decorative brad from the My Mind’s Eye Winter Wonderland pack.
