Coloring Snow & Winter Skies + Winner Info From Faux Verdigris Post

I went down a Copic tutorial rabbit hole this week, probably when I was supposed to be doing something else.

I'm not good at Copic coloring, so I'll state that up front. It's just not a medium I have spent enough time in to have gained any skill.

So when I want to create something I haven't colored before I find tutorials. This week, I googled "coloring snow" and I got a great tutorial on the Copic Europe site for simple snow coloring and got the bonus of this GORGEOUS winter sky background, so I did a terrible, inexpert recreation of Faye Wynn Jones beautiful, softly blended sky. But look at mine first, so you don't feel sorry for me and my coloring skills :D I used the same markers she lists for the sky. The sentiment is stamped in Nocturne while the image is stamped in Amalgam ink.

This adorable snowman and his kitty are today's collaboration with my sweet friend Nicole Peterson of Picket Fence Studios and Simon Says Stamp. This is a Stamptember exclusive, so if you like snowmen and cats, grab it here before it sells out. Nearly every set I've seen so far has sold out! It's a large stamp set with tons of snowmen and hilarious sentiments. That's kind of Nicole's thing, and she's good at it. I'm so excited that Picket Fence Studios is part of Stamptember this year - I know it's very exciting for her.
I think "Be sure to shake your flakes this season" is my favorite sentiment!

But I told Nicole I have a LOT of stamps, and I'm 100% sure I've never seen a snowman with a kitty on his head before! So adorable. And a lot like my cats, who like to drape themselves around our necks 24/7.

I hope you have a fun weekend on tap - I have my card class this weekend so I'm looking forward to that!

Here's my winner from my Faux Verdigris post with the Stamptember set I used!

What a cool Faux Verdigris technique and what a gorgeous card!!! Thanks for the opportunity to win the amazing stamp set. Most of my inks are from Stampin Up, so my fave all time color is Almost Amethyst, now retired. I painted my first craft room with that color! Thanks again and God bless!

Email me Angella via the Contact Me link in my sidebar!!

I'm off to get ready for my card class tomorrow - Loveyameanitbye.


  1. Love this adorable snowman and kitty card Lydia! Too cute!

  2. I'm not good at Copic coloring, but a wise woman once told me "Perfection is for serial killers", that's very freeing, and now I have a lot more joy in creating. Congratulations to Angella!

  3. AWESOME!! I'm so excited to win the beautiful stamp set!!! Thank you so much!! Blessings, Angie
