I have so much to tell you about this card – it’s kind of a momentous occasion for me.
- I’ve been drooling over and stalking Mo Manning’s incredible digital stamps over at Digital Pencil Too.
- After enviously eying beautiful creations with Copic markers, I’ve been using Hobby Lobby and Archivers coupons here and there to slowly collect enough markers to actually create something.
- And, finally, I’ve been dying to try my dear friend, Libby Hickson’s, tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers to make an acetate snow globe card.
So . . . without further delay, my first digital stamp, Copic marker, snow globe card!
This adorable image is called Kai in the Snow. You can find some amazing creations using Mo’s images at Mo’s Challenge Blog and her group and albums at Paper Craft Planet. Oh, and for the traditional stamper, Mo will soon be carrying acrylic and/or rubber stamps.
- Paper – ANW Crestwood (Archiver) Bright White, Stampin’ Up! Ski Slope Designer Series Paper (retired), 3M Write-on Transparency Film (a cheap acetate alternative)
- Fibers – Stampin’ Up! 5/8″ Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon
- Miscellaneous – Polar Whie Flower Soft, generic snow glitter, and Doodlebug Crushed Velvet Flock (on the hat and scarf)
- Markers – Baby Blue Spica and . . .
And, here’s a close up of Kai – cause he’s just so cute.
I grew up in Indiana where sometimes you just get grey sleet as a poor excuse for snow, and sometimes you get a beautiful fresh sparking white coat of snow that turns everything into a glittery wonderland. Mom used to call that snow Camelot Snow. Well, here in Texas, we don’t see much snow, Camelot or otherwise, so it was fun for me to color Kai and think of Mom’s Camelot Snow.
Hugs and wishes for a Camelot winter,
