Welcome to this week's Try it out Tuesday from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design! This week our challenge is to use Flower Soft on our projects (keyword: TIOT37)! I'm fairly new to Flower Soft but I am loving it! I got the new Polar White in my last order from Susana - not only is it a great addition to flower bouquets, but it makes fabulous snow! As soon as I saw it in person I knew I had to use it to make snow at least once. It already has some snowy shimmer to it, but I added a bit more glitter, just to be safe! ;)
I have missed all my sweet images while I was rehabbing my hand, LOL. So I just had to ink up one of the cutie pies from the Victoria Case for SCACD Hearts & Hugs Collection 2! This is Autumn. I went to "the old standby" for a sketch today, I used this week's Sketch Challenge from Splitcoast (SC246). Here's the sketch:
I started off by stamping her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink (omitting the leaves) and coloring with Copic markers. I gave her nice, rosy cheeks and freckels - couldn't resist that! I paper pieced her tights (too cold for bare legs up here in the great white north)! Then I laid down the snow by her feet - she's having such fun she even kicked up a big clump in front of her boot (obviously, she doesn't have to shovel). Then I added some Shamrock Green Flower Soft to the band of her fuzzy hat. Lots of Kaisercraft Pearls in the corners and she's ready for winter!
