Stay cool! with Elena.

Hi there!

Elena here, with a card that features a set from our newest release, Stay Cool.

I started out by coloring the images that I wanted to feature: the little kid on the polar bear, and the ice-fishing kid. I colored their parkas and mittens in a neutral light brown (using copic markers E30, E31, and E33.)

I added warmth to the polar bear using light grey markers (W3, W1 and W00,) but I was very light-handed with the coloring. I left most of his body uncolored and just gave shadows where I thought they would be.

The ice-fisher found a present instead of a fish, and I also added a tiny snowman from Snow Fun as an extra cold-weather friend. I die-cut the COOL sentiment and colored it using a light blue marker (B0000.)

For the background, I used a piece of Altenew's Nebula washi tape, and also grounded the image using a piece of their Golden Edge washi tape. I added some white enamel snow dots to the night-sky background to finish things off.

I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!
