Snow Tutorial for Mad for Markers

Hi all, this is my first tutorial ever an it is for Mad for Markers, firstly I am not Copic Certified, this is just how I love to colour snow images! Copic colours needed are C1, C3 & BG10 (available from Sammi at Mad for Markers Store.

Is this just the cutest snowman from Magnolia, stamped using Momento Ink

First I use C3 to colour shaded, creased areas or where I feel the light would highlight the snow. This is only a very thin line or lightly touching to dot the area.

Secondly I use C1 and lightly feather blend or dot where I have used C3, then I use the C1 to lightly colour odd places, this image is perfect as there are dots which give you a guideline where colour is needed.

Finally I use BG10 and lightly blend into the C1 & c3 to get this effect. I have TGF snowmen which are much smaller and found it better to only use the C1 and BG10.

Finally I coloured the rest of him, and this is how he looks. Added Special effects and some Crushed Velvet Lilac Flock to his ear muffs and fur trim

and made my first ever tent card, I heat embossed the snowflakes, cardstock is elegant eggplant
I don't feel I have said to much lol! So please if I haven't explained something properly please le me know.
