Here are the details on my card..

I stamped the gingerbread house with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then used Copic markers to color, starting with E57.

Filled in with E31.

Used E33 to blend.

On the roof tiles, I used N3 and C1.

R22 and R24 on the chimney.

On all the little candies, I used two shades of each color, a light and a dark. I went around the outside edges with the dark color and filled in with the light. I didn't worry about blending in such small areas.

Tip: If you only have a dark of a particular color, you could fill in the whole candy and then touch your blender pen to the centers to add some highlights. You might have to touch it two or three times depending on how much lighter you want it. If you only have a light of a particular color, you can fill it all in and then go around the outside a few times to add some lowlights.

I used the same colors on the door as on the house front and the same on the curtains and windows as the blue and yellow candies.

After coloring, I used a Quickie Glue and glittered it all up with my Doodlebug Glitter.

For the background I stamped and embossed these whimsical trees.

I tore post-it notes to mask off the bottom and then sponged Bashful Blue ink.

Sponged Ballet Blue ink.

Sponged Vivid Purple (new color available Thursday from Gina K).

Used N5, C3, C1 and my blender pen to add some shadows to the snow.

Quickie Glue pen and more glitter to add some sparkle to the snow.

I stamped the medalion from the second stamp set included in the kit, Holiday Greetings, then punched it out with a 1 1/4 inch circle punch, then added a Rocket Red layer cut using scallop circle Nestabilities. The card is layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx, Rocket Red and Vibrant Violet (the Vibrant Violet is not part of the kit, but will be available Thursday as a single color pack or in the Autumn Assortment Pack).

Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow with our final day of previews. Have a great day!

Yifatiii said...

Wonderful card!!!! as always :)
I love the way you do the backgrounds in every card you make.
Which type of ink do you use for it? Dye? Pigment?

Jessica said...

I KNEW you would do something amazing with these sets - and see, you DID! I LOVE your scene and your coloring... can I be you when I grow up?!?! And look - you used glitter!! Whoohoo!!!!

Betty M said...

Wow - what a great card and such fantastic colouring. I really like that you show us visually how you colour the card. It helps to understand how to use the Copics better. This is going to be another great stamp set.
