Snowmen Selfie for the Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 7th of February, 2020

At Winter Wonderland this month, we are hosted by Amanda!
Welcome to our second challenge for 2020 and our tribute to Eileen, the former owner and coordinator of the Winter Wonderland Challenge who sadly passed away at the beginning of 2017. 

Many of you will remember Eileen from seeing her cards both here and on other challenge blogs - this challenge is our way of remembering her and showing our appreciation for all she did here at the Winter Wonderland Challenge.

Our theme is:


So here is my card:

Please remember that it is Christmas projects only and they must include the theme.

Our wonderful sponsor is:

Living in Leeds, Yorkshire in the UK, working full time as a Management Accountant, currently working on 2 design teams and an obsessive crafter and creator of cards. I have no actual style as yet but do love the unusual and quirky. I may be known for producing cards in soft pastel colours. I love anything arty. I've always drawn stuff, for as long as I can remember. In my younger days I sold a few watercolour paintings. I recently found mixed media which is a joy and love creating canvases with flowers. I had a battle with digital drawing for about a year and finally found some software I could gel with. 

In January 2016 a challenge team I worked on was short of a designer's images to create with so to the crafting world, to the lovely ladies who have supported me on my journey. I've a Facebook group SheepSki Designs where I hold challenges, some for fun to win digis as well as my monthly card challenge. I've a SheepSki Designs challenge blog as well. Things are growing slowly (thankfully) so I still manage to spend at least a little time with my hubby. Welcome to my world Andrea xx

And the prize on offer for the winner is - 3 images of their choice 

We were able to select images, but of the three images, I could not decide! So Helen gave me Snowmen Selfie.

I digitally printed Snowmen Selfie on to X-Press It blending card, which I then cut out using my paper cutter. 
I have coloured the image with the following Copics markers:
  • snowmen - C00, C0, C1, C2
  • reds - R22, R24, R27
  • greens - G12, G14, G17
  • carrot noses - YR12, YR14, YR16
  • eyes - C7, C9, 100, black Wink of Stella
  • coal mouth - 100
  • top hats - C5, C7, C9, clear Wink of Stella on the red/green bands
  • pipe/arm - E35, E37
  • fluffy white of hat - C00, C0, clear Wink of Stella
  • background - BV000
  • Outline - V25
  • sentiment - BV000, V25, Wink of Stella
I then adhered the coloured image on to a card from my stash and adhered the sentiment from Chickadee in Barberry by the wonderful Marcella at Power Poppy.
As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Monthly Class from the awesome Alyce at Kit and Clowder.

Here is a close-up of the colouring:

I will add this card to the following challenges:
The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge #64 - Anything Christmas Goes
