A Winter Showcase with RSD

Happy Sunday everyone! Welcome to our second Rick St. Dennis MFA (RSD) Showcase at the Sparkle and Glitter blog. Some, and sometimes all, of Rick’s Elite Design Team (EDT) will be showcasing projects completed with some of Rick’s amazing digital images. Rick will be giving us a monthly theme and we will be picking our own images from his vast collection of images in his Etsy and Zibbet shops.

Snow Buddies was my image pick for this month’s RSD Showcase. You can find this adorable image in Rick's Zibbet shop. Snow Buddies was first colored with Copics and then trimmed with a Spellbinder’s A2 Matting Basics B die. The edges were distressed with Denim Days ink. After the ink was dry I layered the image with Stampin’ Up!’s (SU) Night of Navy cardstock and Fun Stampers Journey (FSJ) Whipped Cream cardstock.

Copics and pens/pencils used:
Skin: E000, 00, 04, 11, 21, and R20
Pups and Hair: C0, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, white Prismacolor pencil
Coat: E31, 33, 35
Boots: E21, 23, 25, 27, 29, Blender for water marks
Pants, Mittens, and Eyes: B91, 93, 95, 97
Background: W00, 0, 1, 2, 4, and B91, white gel pen for faux snow

My snowflakes are from Spellbinder’s (they are listed below). They were just a little flat so I decided they needed some sparkle.  I added a glaze and glitter. Next time I want to do several layers of the glaze to give a little more 3D effect.

Supplies used and their links:
Cardstock: SU’s Night of Navy and Fun Stampers Journey Whipped Cream;
Designer paper: Heartfelt Creations Countryside Evening collection;
Dies: Spellbinder’s A2 Matting Basics B and Holly Motifs, 2013 Snowflake Pendent, Create a Flake 3, and Fun Stampers Journey Holiday Set;
Inks: FSJ Journey Denim Days;
Other: FSJ Journey Glaze and Journey Sparkle Dust, SU frosted finished embellishment.

There’s a lot happening within Rick’s camp. Are you participating in our monthly Progressive Challenge going on at our Sparkle and Glitter Blog? You have a couple of weeks to participate. The theme is “Anything Goes” and you must use an RSD image. Come check that out and hopefully you will join the fun. Also, in our RSD Facebook group our bi-weekly art contest has started again. If you missed the current one (you still have 24 hours to enter), don’t worry, a new contest will be posted tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by. If you have any questions, please contact me.
