Happy 2013, everyone ... a new year, a new month, a new calendar! I adore snowmen and this relatively new one, Uncle Todd Juggles, from Lockhart Stamp Company is a cutie, don't you think?
I stamped him onto Copic X-Press It Blending Card and colored him with markers from Copic's 25th Anniversary Limited Edition Sketch set:
The smaller nibs on these markers make it easier to color smaller details, like the striped scarf! But yet they also have the super brush nib that I adore about the regular Sketch markers.
Copic 25th Anniversary Limited Edition Sketch Set markers used: B000, BG01, E42, R46, YR12, plus Sketch markers E43 & C1:
I die cut the snowman with the larger Dainty Doily Duo Circle die from My Favorite Things, mounted with Copic foam tape to the My Mind's Eye All Is Bright 6x6 patterned paper. Snowballs are covered with Star Dust Stickles glitter.
I used some Thickers foam alpha stickers to spell out the abreviated month (Jan) on top of some All Is Bright washi tape. My downloadable calendar piece was printed onto Neenah Natural White cardstock and mounted to a stitched tag made from Gina K's Ocean Mist cardstock. The tag is tied with some silver sparkly Maya Road twine.
The MFT die cut snowflake was mounted to an Inchie Arts Neutral Inchie+ Square to give it some dimension and so it wouldn't get lost on the patterned paper. It is accented with a tied button.
