Soft Color Forest Friends

Hello! I'm sharing a card today which I was very conscious about keeping my coloring soft. I'm always into soft colors but it has been difficult to maintin soft because as I add shading for dimensions, the color just gets darker and darker. I chose watercolor for this card since they tend to dry lighter.

Everything was straight forward in this card. I colored all the images with Zig clean markers. For the background, I lightly applied distresss ink antique linen on the four small rectangular MFT primitive white card stock.

Supplies used in this card:

Deer Friend Thanks

Welcome to my first card of 2018! Although it's a thank you card, but you can see a little hint of winter in the card.

For the background, I took a dark grey cardstock from MFT (same color as the one I used for sentiments) and inked music notes background with distress ink iced spruce. Then I applied very thin layer of distress ink faded jeans to the top. Finally I splattered some white acrylic paint for snow effect. I hope you enjoy this card.

Yeti And The Snowy Village

Time for one more Xmas card! In this card I first started off by stamping all the images such as yeti, houses and trees with a little masking involved. After I masked everything, I ink blended the background with distress ink. Mostly chipped sapphire plus a little bit of broken china and tumbled glass. After I white embossed the sentiment, I splattered some water on the background and decorated the sky with white gel pen and Nuvo white crystal drops. After I Copic colored the images, I layed down lots of Ranger stickles frosted lace on the ground where houses and yeti stands. Unfortunately they are not very visible in the picture.

House Warming From The Drawer

I have attended quit a few house warming parties this year and I realized how demanding it could be to make house warming cards. On top of that, I was really amazed by the look and feel of this big window shutter die from Waffle Flower. I was excited make cards out of it.
 
So this is the card I made. Everything was colored using copic markers.
