Can ya taste a snowflake? This was made for the Paper Craft Planet sketch challenge and the High Hopes Sparklemania Challenge.

I love this image as it can easily be either a boy or a girl – very versatile! This image was a PIF from my friend CWILVIE (Hiya Cyndee!)

To make:
I colored this image my usual way with Copics and Prismacolor pencils. I embossed the “fur” of coat and boots with Winter Wonderland embossing powder for some sparkle and cut the image out.

I masked off the “snow” area of some Whisper White cardstock. I sponged Soft Sky 2/3’s of the way up the cardstock. Then I sponged Baja Breeze down into the Soft Sky. To remove any lines between the two colors, I sponged Soft Sky again up into the Baja Breeze area. When I sponge, I dab to get the color on and swirl to blend it in. Next I randomly dotted my Virsamark pen all over the sky area and embossed with Winter Wonderland embossing powder. Finally, I ran only the sky area thru the Snowflakes embossing folder. The red circle is just a ring I cut out using my Cricut and attached to the top of the finished scene. Simple! Assembly and I’m done!
