Hi Crafty Friends! I'm back today with a fun tutorial for Gina K Designs with my Spectrum Noir Markers. Today I'm using the adorable Winter Cheer Stamp TV Kit to make some fun Christmas tags.
Next, I stamped all of the images. TIP: since the cardstock is white, it is easiest to use a dark background when stamping the images to the pre-cut shapes.
I'll be using all of the images for a series of tags (more to come next week)... but today, I'm highlighting the cute little snowmen!
I started with the BT2 Spectrum Noir Marker and added some shadowing to the edge of the snowman.
TIP: If you don't have this marker, grab a piece of scrap paper and start scribbling with the markers you do have to find the color that works for you.
Next, I used the CG1, CG2, and CG3 markers to color the scarf. I started with the CG3 and added shadows to the left edges of the scraf. Then added CG2, and then finishing with CG1. I like working from dark to light colors.
Next, I added CR 8 to each edge of the hat.
And then added CR7 in the middle of the hat. Then I went back in and added just a bit of CR8 to each edge.
For the other cute snowman, I used CG3 & CG4 for the greens on the hat. I started with CG4 and then added the lighter CG3. Then I added the CR8 for the red.
I finished the hat with CR7 and then added CR8 to the scarf and finished it with CR7 again.
Here are the colors I used for my cute little snowmen.
And once again, here are my completed tags. I finished them off with a snowflake image & sentiments from the Winter Cheer sets and pattern paper from the Stamp TV Kit.
Check back next week for more tags using the images from this adorable kit.
