Ohhh it’s Coming….

PT-Santa

Happy…. Holidays??? Ughhhh… I know, right?  I’m so NOT ready to think of Christmas, much less the sugar-laden Halloween!!  But.. as is true in even our department stores, it seems we need to get a head start on all that needs to be “prepared” for the holidays.  Oy!

Today I’m sharing an image from Sherri Baldy’s Besties.  I just adore her cute images and this one is no exception.  I colored it on Cryogen White.  Not only is it the ONLY one I use my Copics with but I love love love the slight sparkle in it!

My background was created using not only snowflakes, but snowflakes also made from the Cryogen White.  Easy… what else needs a sparkle… snowflakes!!!  Behind those sparkly snowflakes is a layer of the Rusched Paper in Red Crepe.  LOVE using this paper whenever I have “clothing” in the image I’m using.  It looks so plush and cozy against Santa’s suit and the Bestiei’s suit as well.  *wink*.  Again, another layer of the Cryogen to boarder and separate my base card which is done using Mica Metallic in Emerald.  LOTS of glimmer and sparkle on this card but added in a understated way.. just enough.. but not to much.

Here’s a close up to show you a bit better how the glimmer works so perfectly.

Hopefully, you can see in my coloring that the Copic markers just blend fabulously with the Cryogen and I swear by it no matter what!  I even prefer it to the actual Xpress paper from Copic.

I hope you give the Rusche and the Mica Metallic papers a try.  And by all means… if you use copics… you MUST use the Crygoen!  Have a great Monday and stay warm… I believe Fall is upon us.  Thanks for stopping by!! *HUGS*
