amuse-bouche Day3

Celebrate the Season - with Elegance

Yes...we are STILL celebrating A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA. Yesterday I taught a wonderful bunch of ladies over at Stamp Works. They learned how to use Copic markers for coloring A Muse images. But not just ANY A Muse stamps...the NEW Holiday ones of course! :) Let me tell you...these ladies "got-er-done" with these markers! Some of them had never use them before (GASP!) - but with a few tips & tricks they were coloring beautiful stamped masterpieces!

One of the class cards yesterday used th
e new Village Chapel and Mini Snowflake images. I thought it would fun to make another card with these same stamps - giving my students another idea - with a Winter Elegance theme.

The card base is the new Navy 4bar note card. Mini Snowflake is stamped with Frost White Colorbox Pigment ink. The sentiment is from a clear set called Holiday Greetings II (not a new set...but a must have for me!). The Village Chapel is stamped on white cs, colored with Copics and then cut out. White Sheer Ribbon from A Muse. Ultrafine crystal glitter on roof top, window ledge, above door, top of snow and around Chapel.

OK students - this is how I colored:
Building - W4 color the building. W6 go back and color in each of the stones.
Windows - Y11 color about 1/2 of each window (the left sides) and then very lightly feather the yellow with 0 Colorless Blender. You will be pushing some of the yellow color over to the left side of each window. W2 very very lightly add a stroke to the left sides of each window. If you get heavy with the gray use Y11 to very lightly push some of the gray back toward the window edge.
Door - W2 very very lightly add some shading to the lines and hinges. If you get a little to much in areas - use the Colorless Blender and lightly feather the edges of the gray. W4 lightly stroke around the top of door.
Under the Chapel- W2 lightly stroke across the white cardstock directly under the Chapel.

fun stamping & coloring everyone!
