This first card is from"Snowball?" A really cute set that I'm sure to be reaching for many times. I colored the image with Copic's and the card stock and ribbon is MFP. The ornament die is from Spellbinder's and glitter was applied by following Faith's tutorial to add the glitter, sorry it doesn't show up well, better if you click on the photo for a larger view.
My next two cards are from "Country Christmas" and I just love this country scene. Both images were done the same just with a different color. So easy to do this, all I did was sponge all around the image going with a lighter touch as I got towards the center. With Copic's I pulled up some strokes to simulate trees in the back ground. I also added some darker color to the shadows. I then added white gel pen to make my snow.
Here in blue tones.
