Tutorial on colouring Snow

Hi all, Annette here, this is my first tutorial ever, firstly I am not Copic Certified, this is just how I love to colour snow images! Copic colours needed are C1, C3 & BG10 available from Sammi at Mad for Markers Store.

Is this just the cutest snowman from Magnolia, stamped using Momento Ink

First I use C3 to colour shaded, creased areas or where I feel the light would highlight the snow. This is only a very thin line or lightly touching to dot the area.

Secondly I use C1 and lightly feather blend or dot where I have used C3, then I use the C1 to lightly colour odd places, this image is perfect as there are dots which give you a guideline where colour is needed.

Finally I use BG10 and lightly blend into the C1 & c3 to get this effect. I have TGF snowmen which are much smaller and found it better to only use the C1 and BG10.

Finally I coloured the rest of him, and this is how he looks. Added Special effects and some Crushed Velvet Lilac Flock (ear muffs and fur trim)

and made my first ever tent card, I heat embossed the snowflakes, on SU Elegant Eggplant Cardstock.

Copics Used (available from Mad for Markers)
C1, C3, BG10
G28, E99, FV2, R89, V12, V17, YG67, YR04, YR23, YR31
