I colored up my card with Copics in as close to the challenge colors as I had--methinks I need some grayer tones in the green/blue-green family. What, buy more Copics?! Well, if I must. . . . LOL. I colored the green first then applied some blending solution on burlap to achieve the appearance of a tweedy coat. For the trim I wanted shearling. I squiggled to get that effect. Squiggle--that's a fun word. Around the fire I played with creating flame highlights on the rocks. Tried anyway! An embossed snowy background and sentiment were next.
Confession time: When I first took this pic, I hadn't added the snowflakes on the right. It looked a bit too empty in that space so I added them and promptly dropped the block next to the flames with the last snowflake. Story of my life, I swear. Well, I Photoshopped that out but it's so there in real life. Argh and ick!
I'm sure you won't have any such troubles when you join our challenge. LOL!
