Dreaming of a Winter Wonderland with Oddball Snowman

This week I’ve switched things up and gone for a Christmas card featuring the new Stamping Bella Oddball Snowman stamp. I thought this would also be a great time to remind you of some tips for colouring white!

Oddball Snowman Card

Here’s my card. The image was stamped using MFT Extreme Black ink on Make it Colour Blending card, then coloured with Copic markers and finished off with some Tim Holtz Seasonal Chit Chat word stickers.

Stamp Used: Stamping Bella Oddball Snowman also available in the UK/Europe from Dies to Die For HERE.

As you can see, I added some fairly dark shadow areas on my snowman and the ground around him, but they still appear “white”. Don’t be afraid to play with your markers/pencils/whatever your preferred medium, and try adding darker shadows to white objects, especially if the rest of your image has strong colours.
