DAY TWO of my Holiday Tag-a-long!
This feels very festive to me. This is "Ice Skating Flopsey" that will be released December 1st at My Favorite Things. The snowflake at the top is just the perfect size for tags with a hole in the middle and everything. It is part of the "let it snowflake" die from MFT.
I colored him with my copics and airbrushed the background...let me show you how!....
I used three colors from a natural blending group to airbrush the background of this tag. First off the darkest at the top BG78.
The lightest of the three BG72 (LOVE this color).
I wanted to create little mounds of snow at the bottom like it had been cleared for the little ice rink. I used post-it notes that I tore to create the hill then sponged in snow cap pigment ink and then embossed it with white embossing powder.
To give a little definition to the mounds I took my BG72 and dusted just the tops of my mounds.
I did this process a few times moving up the tag.
I stamped my rink on a piece of white scrap paper, shaded a little with my copics and then used glossy accents to both attach it to my tag and give a glossy finish to the top.
The gloss wasn't quite enough punch so while the it was still wet I sprinkled glitter around the edges and set aside to dry while I colored flopsey.
Here is my process for coloring the fur part of flopsey. E42
I stamped my skating flopsey on my tag with black ink so that things like the fringe of his scarf and his skate blades I would not have to cut out by hand.
Laid my colored image overtop of the stamped image and voila! Makes me want to go skating!
The snowflakes and sentiment that were embossed on the tag were from another flopsey set called "Snowflake Flopsey".
