Sledging Pups by All Dressed Up for Winter Wonderland for the 7th of May, 2021

At Winter Wonderland this month, we are hosted by Stacey.
Welcome to our fifth challenge for 2021.

Our theme is:

Winter Sports

So here is my card:

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

Our sponsor for this challenge is All Dressed Up:

Here's a bit about All Dressed Up:

Hi, my name's Wendy, founder of All Dressed Up. I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children (my inspiration behind the characters) - in particular, my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with trends and all things digital.

Day to day, I work as a textile designer working traditionally within childrenswear, fashion and interiors. Although my work is mostly digital, my work process remains hand-drawn which I hope comes across in my artwork. 

All Dressed Up was created in 2013 as a place to share my digital stamps which back then was a whole new challenge for me. Since, I've been lucky to have discovered a whole creative community and welcomed the All Dressed Up design team who have been amazing to work with. Through our online community and Instagram, the team keep me on my toes to keep on drawing, creating and inspiring. My favourite thing is seeing how my characters are continually given brand new personalities!

On our Facebook and Instagram page we host regular tutorials, challenges (and freebies!) and is the real heart of our community. The stamps are available from the All Dressed Up Etsy shop which is continually updated on a monthly basis with lots of limited edition and seasonal stamps available in particular.

The All Dressed Up community is a friendly bunch (if I do say so myself!) and we would love for you to get involved, see your work and for you to share your stamping tips too! Do get in contact and be sure to visit our Facebook and Instagram pages to see what we're creating at the moment.

I chose Sledging Pup for my image, which I digitally printed four times in various sizes 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:
  • sleds - E31, E33, E35, E37
  • pups 1 and 4 - E11, E13, E15, E18, 100, piece of nappy with colourless blender, clear Wink of Stella on the nose
  • pups 2 and 3 - E53, E55, E57, E59, 100, piece of nappy with colourless blender, clear Wink of Stella on the nose
  • pups 1 and 3 
    • blue scarf/middle strip of jumper - B12, B14, B16
    • outer strips of jumper/hearts - BG53, BG45, BG57
  • pups 2 and 4 
    • pink scarf/middle strip of jumper - RV52, RV55, RV66
    • outer strips of jumper/hearts - BV01, BV04, BV08
  • holly - YG03, G14, G16
  • berries - R37, R59, clear Wink of Stella
  • snow - BV0000, BV000, C0, C1, C3, clear Wink of Stella
  • sky - B000, B00, B12, B21, B23, Y11, E50, RV42, R000, R20, R30
  • outline - B23
I then adhered the coloured image on to a white card from Envelope Solutions.

The sentiment is from the November 2020 Club La-La Land Crafts kit by the wonderful Irina at La-La Land Crafts. I have stamped the sentiment in Nautical Blue Memento ink using my MISTI.

As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Monthly Classes and Bonus Classes from the awesome Alyce at Kit and Clowder.

Here are some close-ups of the colouring:
