I first stamped a rough draft of my card onto a 8.5″ x 4″ piece of white card stock to figure out exactly where I wanted to place my images. I then used this rough draft along with a Gina K Designs Masking Magic Sheet to mask my images while I stamped. Masking allows you to place images on top of each other and give the appearance of depth without the stamp lines from different images overlapping each other as they usually would. With my masking pieces in place, I blended some Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean, and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks for my background. I splattered this background with diluted white paint to resemble snow, allowed it to dry, and then removed my masking pieces so that I could color my images.
I used Copic Markers to color my images and stamped my sentiment onto the top right corner with black ink after I had trimmed my card to 8.25″ x 3.75″ and layered it with a 8.5″ x 4″ piece of white card stock.
Copic Colors Used:
- White: 0, C00, C1, C3
- Grays: W00, W1, W3, W5
- Reds: R14, R27, R46, R89
- Greens: YG01, YG07, YG17, YG67
- Black: W5, W7, W9
- Squirrel: 31, E23, E25, E29
- Fox: E00, E11, E13, E09
- Bear: E41, E43, E44, E47
