I had a left over heat embossed sentiment from a previous project so that saved me a step, just had to mount it onto a label and back it with foam tape. The precision stamp press is wonderful for re-stamping onto the same image to get the colour depth you like.
The colours of the snowman was a bit hit and miss, I just grabbed colours that I liked and I think it turned out lovely and bright. The colouring technique that I used was this:- from the outside line I flicked or circled strokes in towards the centre area. I started with the light colour first, then mid colour, colourless blender over these 2 colours, then dark colour and back to mid colour.
The colourless blender may be used after the coloured area is finished or if it blended ok, I didn’t use it. For the twirls in the air, I painted them with a water brush with a mix of 2 pigment powders and a bit of water. The photos don’t seem to pick up the lovely pearly sheen.
To finish, it was just a matter of trimming the image and matting it onto the card front.
