So, I've been entering the Outlawz Challenges, the Freebie/Progressive monthly challenge. Each month they send a free image for you to color and make a project. You can enter it in the challenge, upload it to your gallery there, and enter it in the Inlinkz linkup for a chance to win digis! It has been an opportunity for me to be inspired by all the others on the site, improve my coloring skills, make cards I can use, and maybe even win a digi or two. My December entry was this cute snowman from Sandi's Samples. I thought I would try paper-piecing on the poinsettia on the snowman, just to be different. I've never tried that technique before, so I thought it would be fun. Then, when I went to cut it out, well, it was a very small poinsettia, as the snowman was only 3.5 inches tall! Anyway, I colored him up using Copic markers G40, YG13, YG17, for his hat, scarf, mittens and poinsettia shading; YR04, YR07, R02 for his carrot nose; W00, W01, W03 for his eyes and buttons; BV0000, BV20 for shading his snow-sides; and E21, E23, E25, E 27, E29, R24, B32, YG13, W1 for the wood grain in the sign. Enjoy!
