Christmas: Yetis with trees


These cards were created on 11th November; day 11 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge.

Yes, more yetis… They are a nice, fairly simple, shape which lent itself well to being used for testing a bunch of different ways of adding texture and sparkle, and it would be a shame to waste those test pieces 🙂

This time I created a stamped tree background for them to stand in front of.


The trickiest part of this was getting a good stamped impression of the trees. Even with the MISTI and pigment inks it was hard to get good coverage on the hammered card, so I ended up using a small sponge dauber to smooth over the gaps. It’s not very obvious, but I also added some white below the trees for the yeti to stand on. The yetis, gifts and sentiment banners were added to the card base, either glued flat or popped up on thin foam tape. A few sequins finished the cards.
