Winter Is Cool

Now that Christmas is over, my mind turns to winter... snow, cold temperatures, etc. So far, it's been pretty mild. In fact, as I write this blog post, it's actually quite warm, rainy and WINDY! But that's sure to change at some point and winter weather will be upon us.

Winter is Cool!

I used the Raisin Boat Winter Heart and Sole stamp set. To create my sky, iced-over pond, and grassy hillside, I colored broad strokes of Zig Clean color marker onto the watercolor paper and then used a water pen to move the color around to the desired affect. Such a fun technique. I'll have to do that again sometime soon.

I colored the ice-skates with Copic Markers.

Here's the inside of my card:

Love the winter feel of this great card! Does it get cold enough where you live for lakes to freeze for skating?
