Christmas Bestie with Snow Pen

Hi everybody,

I just finished coloring this Sherri Baldy Christmas Bestie and wanted to share it with you.  It's not quite finished, I haven't made card yet.  I've always been afraid of dark colored copics, especially red, well, I dove right in and I love the results.  The dress is 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.  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 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. 

Anyway, here is my image.  I'll post finished card on the 24th when I blog my Besties post for the team.  Please excuse that little bit of black on the left side.  I'll cover that with something lol.  That's the great thing about us cardmakers.... we can always fix it somehow. :)

This is beautiful and it is the first time I ever heard of the Snow Pen too. Might have to look into that as your snow and your fur is awesome!
