Two Snowmen for the Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 6th of March, 2020

At Winter Wonderland this month, we are hosted by Christine!
Welcome to our third challenge for 2020.

Our theme is:

Unfortunately I did not see the theme until after I had finished, but hopefully there is enough blue! I tend to steer towards blue!

So here is my card:

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

Our wonderful sponsor is:
Everything that you ever wanted to know about Bugaboo Stamps - a short essay!
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was seven years ago.
Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.
Jodie works hard to provide new releases and freebies every week!
And the prize on offer to our lucky winner is:
$12 gift code to spend in the Bugaboo Stamps store.

I chose Two Snowmen for my image, which I digitally printed on to X-Press It blending card and then cut out using my paper cutter. 
I have coloured the image with the following Copics markers:
  • snowmen - colourless blender, C00, C0, C1, R30
  • carrot noses - YR04, YR07, YR09
  • eyes and coal - black Wink of Stella
  • arms - E41, E44, E47
  • top hat - C5, C7, C9, R32, R35, R37
  • holly - YG00, YG06, YG67, R35, R37, clear Wink of Stella
  • green and white scarf - G12, G14, G17, white gel pen
  • tree - YG61, YG63, YG67, E47, YR07, YR09, clear Wink of Stella, black Wink of Stella
  • star on tree - Y11, Y13, Y17, clear Wink of Stella
  • red buttons - R32, R35, R37, clear Wink of Stella
  • woollen hat - R32, R35, R37, G12, G14, G17, clear Wink of Stella
  • red and green stripey scarf - R32, R35, R37, G12, G14, G17
  • purple heart - purple Wink of Stella

  • snow - Y000, R000, C0, C1, clear Wink of Stella
  • outline - V25
I then adhered the coloured image on to a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions.
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:
