Avery Elle … Warm Wishes

Hey there Avery Elle fans.  I’m over on the Avery Elle Blog today sharing a card using this week’s featured stamp set from the latest release.  All this week the design team will be sharing what we’ve created using the Warm Wishes stamp set and dies along with many other fabulous products from the Avery Elle arsenal!

The Warm Wishes stamp set contains 2 jar images which would make great gift tags but for my creation I went with a card.  I decided the North Pole image from Frosty Friends would fit perfectly inside the larger jar so with the addition of the snowbank and little tree my winter scene came together in no time.

I used to really struggle with trying to colour something that’s white or clear (snow, glass, polar bears, etc).  I would overcomplicate things trying to shade with different colours and depths but then I decided to chill out (pardon the pun) and discovered that it’s actually really easy to get the feeling of snow or ice very simply.  For the glass jar and snow in my card I chose a pale, aqua Copic marker (in this case BG11) and just added highlights here and there around the edges of the images.  This gives the hint of light that is reflected from something bright white like ice.  To make it even frostier I used a Quickie glue pen on the snowy parts and sprinkled over them with some very fine crystal glitter.  In this case the background patterned paper panel (from the Sorbet Collection paper pad) acts brilliantly to draw the eye in to the focal image and add even further to the winter colour scheme.
