Top O Morning Snowman Wishes

Hello friends!  Well, it’s certainly not morning, but maybe it is where you’re from or it’s morning when you see this post! 🙂

I have a really fun Whimsy Stamps digital image to share with you today appropriately named to coincide with my post title:

Vicki-Oct16

This really sweet faced snowman is called Top O the Morning Snowman which is a digital image created by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps.  I thought it was so cute with the little birdie joining him and his little heart buttons!  I had fun coloring him up!

I’ve colored him with Copics and cut it out using the Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles die and matted some black cardstock behind that panel.  I’ve also used the October Digital papers release called Christmas Red, Gold and Green and attached it to the front of an A2 sized white card base.  I then took the wavy die from the Pierced Border Trio dies and cut a piece of glitter cardstock to add at the bottom of the decorated digital paper panel.

I then added the snowman panel over top and then stamped the sentiment below the snowman with the Holiday Mini Sentiments stamp set.  I then added the twine bow and button as well as a few snowflake sequins and filled the centers with some Nuvo Crystal Drops to finish it off.

Here’s a closer view of the coloring:

I have used all Copic markers to color this image in the following colors:

  1.  Hat and Snowman body/snow:  C8, C5, C3, C1, C00
  2. Hat Band, buttons, bird hat/scarf:  R37, R35, R32
  3. Holly:  YG67, YG63, YG61, (hollies colored with pink glitter gel pen and covered with Nuvo Crystal Drops
  4. Snowman Scarf:  G24, G21, G20 + green glitter gel pen for lines and ends
  5. Snowman nose and cheeks:  R20, R00, R000, YR18, YR15, Y11
  6. Bird:  B34, B32, R00, E000, Y21, Y11

COPIC MARKERS FOUND HERE

I’ve also used a white gel pen for the cheeks on both the snowman and bird as well at the eyes on the snowman and to randomly add some dots for falling snow effect.  I also went around the outside of the image with a B000 marker for a bit of sky behind him.

I’ve also wanted to be sure to invite you to play along with the Whimsy Stamps Challenge over in their Facebook Group!  It just started up yesterday and we look forward to seeing your makes with a Whimsy Stamps image!  (You will need to use a Whimsy Stamps image to enter the challenge over there.)
