snowman the kittie way


well its a start. The tree is by stampin up the snowman by great impressions Stamped the snowman in black on watercolor paper. then I added the trees stamped with olive green and masking the snowman so I could get behind him. daubed some olive green on the trees and behind them to fill it in. colored in the snowman using the fine tip of stampin up pens and some water color pen on the boots and hats. I sponged some bashful blue in the sky. I used the watercolor pen and added a little brown on the trees and blended the shadows a bit.

Things I don't like : the little ornament on in his hand. going to take that out for the next 10 that I do for a swap. and the white that you can't see here I actually daubed craft white all over the place. Need to find some good white ep. the white ep I had looks yellow when heated.


edited to add: I learned this from Kittie on split coast stampers she is an awesome stamper check out her blog for more information
