'Chilling' With My Friends

This is a Mo's Digital  Pencil Image and comes with a Christmas greeting but as we celebrate Christmas here in the middle of Summer it just didnt work for me but I love the image. So I just didnt use the image and decided to make it a Winter friends card. Two friends 'Chillin' together.

I coloured with Copics, rather heavy handed as I felt her clothes needed to look
snug and warm. Rather than all grey for seal and water and ice I decided to play
with colour and use a bit of blue, in my ice-land the area is blue - ok!!

I decided to add glitter to the white areas as I don't have anything for fluffy look
and it certainly looks wonderful but must admit it looks a wee bit Christmasy and
also it tended to warp the card stock. When I do more I will have to find a fluffy
type of white and also use a thicker card stock which I am not sure is available
in Copic friendly???

Anyway to keep it nice and CAS I didn't add any embellishments as there
was enough glitter on her clothing and just added the sentiment 'Chillin'
which I made out of silver glitter peel offs. I also had no cool, cold, chill
etc words in all the million and one sentiments and single words I have.

Aileen, this is so adorable! That sweet image is colored so festively, and the glitter is an amazing touch! Your comment about the sentiment made me laugh...isn't it the truth, we never have the one word we need when we have so many other sentiments! Your "chillin" is perfect! Thanks for joining us at CASology!

Oh this is truly stunning Aileen, two of my fav. colours chosen to colour this ultra cute Mo image.
BTW I used this on my sheep fir Christmas as would work fir the fluffy part of this image (although I DO love the glitter) here it's from Joanna Sheen in U.K. And they've free post when you spend £10. That's not hard 😊
Thanks for sharing your inspiration, and for popping over too, Aileen, sorry it's so warm where you are. And very happy to send you some brusho cards!!! 😉
