Gated Penguins?

IT IS FRIDAY!  Congrats friends, we made it through the work week.  I'm off to see my Brockport Crew this afternoon.  I can't wait to make some Christmas cards with lively bunch.  

Today's post is a first for me.   I have never made a gate card before.  I really like the style of this card.    I'm excited to play around with this card layout.  I took lots of photos of this card,  hopefully you can get a feel of how it is put together.

white paper is embossed with snowflakes

Copics used: 

Black: T5, T7, T9, 100
Yellow: Y15, Y17
Cheeks: R11
Snow: B00, B000
Stool: BG45, BG49
Red: R24, R27, R29, R39, 
I put Stickles on the snow and used my finger to spread them out, so it would look smooth. I love how they look like sun is reflecting off the snow. 

If I were to color this card again, I'm not sure I would color the banner red. I think the red is too harsh.  It overpowers the card a bit.   I had a hard time picking colors.  Red and Green seem to be obvious choices, but not sure they work.   My only thought is to leave the banner white and color the sky.  Any suggestions? 

Have a creative day!!

  1. Hi,
    I tried to comment on your blog but I didn't think it worked. So I thought I would comment here. If you are going to color the sky and not the banner I would suggest that you airbrush the sky first before stamping. Although now that I think of it. It might be nice to do both. I gotta tell you. The red banner gives it character.
