Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - anything goes!
Sponsor & prize this week - Digi Doodle, $10 gift certificate
Now, I might be taking a few liberties here with my image setting this twosome in a wood in winter, (my first thoughts would be this was a spring/summer kind of image), but I seem to recall Bambi walking through the snow & if it was good enough for Disney to do it then I am willing to take a risk with it too! LOL.
This image is from our sponsors this week, Digi Doodle and is called 'Deer & Fawn'. I coloured it in using Promarkers and a couple of Trias using this month's sketch over at CLP. I wasn't quite sure how deep a colour to give them as they would surely have a thicker, usually slightly less colourful coat in the winter months so it was a bit of guess work really. Then of course, I had made it into a night scene so this would take down the colours rather too - just to make things even more problematic for myself! On slightly safer territory, to create all my various snowflakes which I just love on Christmas cards, I used a combination of Martha Stewart punches and Marianne Creatable dies and the swirling foliage was cut using 2 dies from Double Do. These were given their sparkle courtesy of Stickles (this time Frosted Lace), and a few pearls scattered about for good measure. The fabric is edged with acrylic paint and still more texture was created using a dotty embossing folder.
