Gina K Designs ~ The 12 Days of Christmas Sketch

Hello, Hello!!!  Christmas is coming so quickly & today it is my turn to host the 12 Days of Christmas challenges countdown with Gina K. Designs and StampTV.  For all the rules and prize info, see below.*

I have decided to do a sketch based on THIS Stamp TV video by Gina!

Here's my card...

Use the tag STV14TWELVEDAYS5 when you upload to StampTV for this challenge.  You can view all the entries for this day HERE. Awesome prize at stake if you complete all 12! :) We hope you have fun getting creative with us and sharing the festive holiday spirit!

 *Each challenge is different, and to play along you will need to enter a new card for each challenge in order to be eligible for prizes. You also will need to use Gina K. images and sentiments to be eligible, although any other products may be from other vendors. There is one prize per challenge of a Gina K. Designs stamp set of the winner's choice up to 23.95 value. The winners are chosen by the host/hostesses however they want to choose their winner. There will be a special badge made by Gina for both the STV 12 Days of Christmas event, as well as a special one for those who complete all 12 challenges!  There will also be a Grand Prize of a $50 GKD gift certificate.  One winner will be chosen from among those who play along with all 12 challenges! You may enter the cards you use here for challenges at Stamp TV into other challenges on other stamping sites. You have until December 31st to complete and upload your entries.

Tutorial Details:

For my project today, I will also share how I colored my sweet little fox from the Winter Cheer Stamp TV Kit with Spectrum Noir Markers and Blendable Colored Pencils.

Step 1: Begin with selecting colors that match your card for the skates & scarf.  I used JG7 for the skates and DR2, DR3 & pencil 025 for shading on the scarf.

Step 2: I selected several Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils for the fox ~ 090, 092 to start.

Step 3: I started with the darkest (092) around the edges and add the lighter pencils (090) for the rest.

Step 4: Next I used the Spectrum Noir Gamsol and paper blending stumps to smooth out the pencil lines.

Step 5: I added a reddish/brown (095) for more contrast on the fox and then blended again with the Gamsol.

Step 6: I pulled a few light tan markers (TN2, FS1) to color the remaining parts of the fox (tummy, paws, face and tail) & added FS3 to the ears.

And that's all that is needed to complete this sweet little guy!
