Snowy Birthday

Hi there :)

I'm still try to cool down with these snowy cards lol, I hate summer!

This card was pure colouring bliss, I thoroughly enjoyed colouring this image that became a CAS birthday card.

Before the background

With the background

Adding background colour sure does make an image POP!

I used a few different mediums for this card, firstly Copic Marker to colour Whimsical Snowman and the base of the background then Distress Oxide's and a white pigment ink and white embossing powder for the 'snow' and the sentiment.

ATC - Artist Trading Card.

Hello it's time for the next Tiddly Ink Challenge - ATC Fun!

I have a confession to make, when I first read that the challenge was ATC fun I had to ask Lou what ATC was lol, so if you're in doubt don't worry so was I. 
Here's a link that I found useful to explain what an Artist Trading Card is - HERE

I used this scene from the Everyday Whimsy Coloring Book from Tiddly Inks and resized it so darn small to become the correct size for an ATC - 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
