Christmas Bestie with Snow Pen

Hi everybody,

I colored this Sherri Baldy Christmas Bestie and wanted to share it with you.  Here's a link to the image Winter Wonderland Holiday Tweet Mail.

I've always been afraid of dark colored copics, especially red, well, I dove right in and I love the results.  I normally use R20, R22, R24, R27, and R29 when I want red.  This time I wanted a darker red so I used  R35, R37, and R39.  They blend super easy together.  Then I used the Marvy Snow Pen for the first time and I think it's pretty cool.  Look at the dimension it gave to the fur on her hat and boots.  The faux snow is from Papertrey Ink.  A couple people told me they couldn't find the faux snow at Papertrey Ink.  I bought it just a couple weeks ago.  I wonder if they are just out of it.  There isn't a label or name of any kind on the bottle but I'm sure you can find it at other online stores as well.  It looks like iridescent flakes.  I decided from now on, everytime I place an order with someone, I will order one product I've never tried so this time was the faux snow.  I just used the Zig two way glue pen and sprinkled it on there and heat set it from the back.  I should've used a little more but I'll know next time.  I also used Stickles on the mailbox.  You can never go wrong with stickles.  I used the Crystal one.  I did make a boo boo on her yesterday.  I took a Wink of Stella pen and lightly went over the middle of the bow on the mailbox and OMG, it started bleaching it and bleeding.  Well, I thought I had ordered a Clear one but it was White.  I just went back over the ribbon with the reds and it looks better.  So my question is, can you not use the colored Wink of Stella pens over copics?  Several people said they use the Clear and it is fine but when I used the white it immediately bleached it out as if I were using a copic blender pen.

Oh, one more thing.... see the Greeting?  I used Silhouette pens to write that because that is what I wanted on the front and did not have a stamp that said that.  Is that not the coolest thing EVER???  They come in all colors, metallics, and glitter colors.  You have got to try these!  You can write anything you want, pick your size and font.  Love!
