Marshmallow Snowman...Finally!

This week at Meljen's Designs, we have a sketch challenge.  This was the perfect opportunity to use my Marshmallow Snowman image that I mistakenly colored for the Critter challenge.  I am so excited to be able to share him with you.

I colored him using Copic markers.  Not an easy thing to do when coloring white, but I love the way he turned out.  I had to cut the circle out of the square that he was in originally, but thankfully I didn't lose any of the details.  I used the same color scheme as the original card since he was colored to match.  A little embossing and a few embellishments and it's done!

Brown and Orange

You can't look very far without seeing brown and orange this time of year and that is our challenge theme this week at Meljen's Designs.

I used the adorable image Scarecrow Mouse from the newest release and colored him with Copics.  Check out all of the newest images in the shop.  While you are there, check out all of the colored images.  They are on sale for 25% off until Christmas Day.  Just what you need to get those holiday cards done and out of the way!

Critters always helps to be sure of a challenge theme BEFORE you finish your card.  The challenge theme this week is Critters.  You can use any Meljen's Designs animal image.  However, a snowman is not an animal.  And that is what my card originally had as an image.  So what to do?  Use one of the adorable colored Meljen's Designs images.  These precolored images are perfect for when you need a card and time is of the essence!

I pulled off the snowman and snowflake ribbon and put on red ribbon and the colored version of Cherry Mouse.  Don't worry!  You will get a chance to see the snowman image.  He is WAY too cute.
