Warm & Cozy Wishes

 

I just love this image by A Day for Daisies called Hot Coco.  It speaks to me because hot chocolate is my warm drink of choice, since I”m not a coffee drinker.  It was so fun to color with my Copic markers.  I love the little doggy, following along behind.  I used a silver metallic paint marker on her pompom.  I added glossy accents on her bag of marshmallows. The little polka dots were added with a white gel pen.  I popped the image and part of the banner up with fun foam and foam tape.

Little Winter Fairy

I really admire the beautiful images at A Day for Daisies.  The talented folks that make paper crafts with these images are amazing as well!  Other than a simple bunnies design, I have been pretty afraid to try to color any of these images – because the bar is set so high!  So, this is my first try at coloring a more detailed image.  It is called “Little Winter” and it was a freebie on their blog awhile back.  I like how her wings almost look like winter scarves as well.  I do not see it in their shop, but there are so many other lovely options!  I wanted to keep the colors very muted because on a gray-skied day when it starts to snow, things are always monochromatic outside.  There is a slight sparkle in her hair with a Wink of Stella pen that is hard to see in the photo.  This is my first try at using Copic Opaque White paint as well.
