Snowman Present

Morning :)

Today, I'm sharing a card I made for the Colouring Snow Class I taught at the last Dies To Die For Craft Event in Surrey. We were discussing snow. Lol, obviously! It can be really easy to reach for the same Copics when we want to colour something. For example, my go to colour blend for snow is C0, C1 and C3. That's the three markers I reach for, without really thinking about it. Until I thought about it! In our class we played with other combinations for snow, but ironically, the sample I am sharing today is with my old time favourite. 

I coloured the image with these colours to match the Whimsy Stamps Winter Wishes Paper Pad, but when I came to make the card, I felt there was too much going on, so I went for a very clean and simple card. 

Anyway, I promise the next time I colour snow, I won't automatically reach for my favourite. Maybe I'll get a new favourite. You'll have to keep an eye on me, won't you?!
