Claire C Claire C I loved colouring this cute little chap, he really makes me smile. Colours used: 
Penguin: 9909 9507 9505 9503 4105 4147

Beak and feet: 2180 1170 1150

Reds: 3180 5280 5220 5210

Greens 8190 8180 8160

Nikky....I havent had chance to put this little fella called Baby Snow onto a card yet but he was really great to colour. 
I didnt follow the gold and silver theme but I did try and follow this colour palette instead...
Now I have to admit I was really lazy this week - I printed him onto a really duff 80gsm copy paper which just happened to be in the printer and didnt realise till i came to colour him, but I didnt have much option by then so I had to just go with the duff paper and the feeling of dread, knowing how much my markers would bleed.
What happened next was a complete accident really - yes, honestly! I coloured up really quickly and as the paper was almost like blotting paper it soaked the ink so fast I realised that I was getting a bit of a watercoloured look completely unintentionally so I just went with it. I just added my blender to smooth out the blends back into the white paper and left it at that, but was super careful with the reds and made sure I coloured inside the lines - I've got so used to Graph'its not bleeding ever that it was a real shock to the system, I felt like I was colouring with some of my markers from the bad old days LOL.
I wanted to give a feeling of depth and temperature so I added a little blue shadow snowman behind him for a background effect and lots of snowflakes and some snowballs. When you colour snow it's important to pay more attention to the shadows to give yourself a feeling of depth otherwise it just looks one dimensional - make sure you get blue greys and some neutral greys involved in the shadows too....
Colours used: 7101, 7105, 7110 cheeks 4145
Red 5245, Green 8110, 8120, orange 3150
Grey 9400, 9404, Blue grey 9101, 9104
Lots of blender

The colours I have used are:
Elf skin: 4105, 4125, 4150, 3120
Bears: 1230, 1250, 1270 and Mix It fluid on my jumper and pressed on the bears.
Bunny and Mouse: 9500, 9501, 9502, 9503
Reds: 5210, 5215, 5220
