One Last Winter Scene!

I made an ATC out of this darling little scene from the Art-Kure line at Crafter's Companion. I used water based markers and a water brush to add color.
  1. Stamped image with permanent ink, such as StazOn, onto watercolor paper.
  2. I then scribbled the markers on my non-stick craft sheet and picked up color with the water brush. I skipped a section as I painted to allow for drying.
  3. For the windows I colored directly onto the paper with the tip of the water based marker.
  4. For the background layer, I scribbled a variety of markers to match my sky on the non-stick craft sheet, spritzed with water and then swirled watercolor paper around.
  5. I used a heat tool for quick drying. You can also let it dry naturally for a little bit different effect.
  6. Cut out and adhered all the layers.
  7. Used glitter glue to add some sparkling snow.
