Snowmen and Anything Goes

Hello! I have 2 projects to share with you today. The first is for Wicked Wednesday, and the challenge is Snowmen. The second is for A Step in the Dark, and the theme is Anything Goes.

We are sponsored by Sami Stamps this week, and I worked with their My Snowey Friend image. Very appropriate since Long Island just got a foot (and more) of snow dumped on us Monday. Too bad the snow is too powdery to actually build a snowman though.

I used watercolor markers for everything but the skin. I just cannot find the right color watercolor markers for skin. So I had to use my Spectrum Noirs. I added a little washi tape and a simple star button to finish it off. This is such a clean image, I didn't want to overdo it with embellishing.

A Step in the Dark is sponsored by Dilly Beans this week. I used one of my favorite images from Megan, Day of the Dead Frida #338. I colored her with my watercolor markers as well.

I'm quite pleased with her hair. I have never done it primarily white before...it's always black with usually a bit of dark blue. But I love her with white hair!

I used my grassy punch from EK Success, a ribbon from May Arts, a little ink, and another star button. Guess I was in the mood for stars this week, huh? I hope you will join me in at least one of these challenges. Please be sure to visit the Wicked Wednesday Blog as well as the A Step in the Drak Blog for some more fabulous projects. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
