Hello and welcome!!!
Today I’m sharing a cute and simple winter scene featuring some fabulous rubber stamps by Purple Onion Designs illustrated by Julian Charlton.
To start, I stamped a few super fun characters and a couple of accessories from Happy Winter Forest Friends set. I worked on on Copic X-Press paper and used Memento Tuxedo Black ink since it’s copic friendly. I fussy cut all the elements with my sharp small scissors, leaving a little white edge around. Before switching to coloring, I finished the stamping with a big background set on Neenah Solar White paper. The Autumnal Tree illustration that completed my scene, goes perfectly for every season, in my opinion.
And here’re all the colors used on this project: COPIC MARKERS fox YR000-YR02-YR04-YR09-E08; rabbit and fox T0-T1-T3-T5; tree and log E40-E41-E42-E43-E44; birds Y11-Y13-Y18-Y21; leaves G40-G82; YG0000-YG00-YG01-YG25-YG67; R30-R32-R35-R39; BG10-BG32; B00.
Since the background was a little bit tricky to mask, I decided to skip this step. I took a small blending brush and inked the sky portion with Tumbled Glass Distress ink keeping my hand very light towards the tree parts before proceeding with copic coloring. Then, once finished with coloring, I added some tiny droplets of a white gouache for a falling snow effect. The cute scene was completed with a snow slope and the matching heat embossed in white onto red sentiment that comes from the same Happy Winter Forest Friends set.
That’s all for today! Hope you like this cute winter card that can be used not only for the holiday greetings!
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
