Look at this adorable little snowman! It’s family birthday time again and our youngest grandson is turning two tomorrow! Where does the time go?!
I wanted to play in the NBUS challenge with the option of color pencil on kraft. I love how this almost looks like wood!
I stamped with the MISTI, colored with pencil, then went back and using the MISTI again, I left the stamps where they were, inked with black pigment embossing ink, stamped them and heat embossed them with black powder.
So many times when you color with pencils you lose the strong black line. We used to do this years ago when Stampa Rosa had the House Mouse stamps. We would stamp them their stamp positioner, color them with Tombow markers and then come back and emboss them over the top of the marker coloring. Amazing the difference.
Next time I am going to color the image right in the MISTI without moving the card-stock. There was enough ‘user error’ this time that I had to stamp the bear a few times and ended up with a thicker black line then the stamp really has. grrr Still cute though!
Hopefully we’ll get some snow for his birthday! haha It’s been a weird, rainy Winter for Iowa. Not used to dark and dreary. It’s usually bright with snow! I’m sure we’ll get those Winters again.
Thanks for stopping by! See you again soon and I’ll have a special announcement soon too!
