Skating Through Winter

Hello friends,

I'm so excited to share this card with you.  I had no idea how it would turn out when I started.  I stamped the scene, but it wasn't until I sat down to color that I realized that I was faced with an unusual problem.   What color is the sky? Blue.  What color is ice? Blue.  What color do we use as a shadow for snow? Blue.  Hmmmm.... that is a lot of BLUE.  How do you make it look like a scene rather than a blue mess.    I had to play around a bit, but I think I picked blues that were far enough apart that it works.   I also discovered that I really like BG10 for ice!!  It is the little things that make me smile!

Copics used:
Ice: B000, B00, BG10 ( I added some grey to give it texture)
Sky: B45, B41, B00
Grey: C5, C3, C1
Cabin: E15, E13, Y17, E74
Tree: G28, G24
Purple: V12, V15, V17
Blue Gloves: B34, B37, B39
Brown dk: E35, E33, E31, E30
Brown lt: E50, E51, E53, E55
