Winter Wonderland

Winter wonderland is the theme for this week's challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil. And since Santa arrived a bit early this year and delivered an air compressor for my Copic markers (via a man in a brown suit), I had to do a test run to create this nighttime skating scene using Bella and Bronte.



Although I used several shades of blue Copic markers, I do like the way the sky turned out. I cut a second image to mask this one before spraying.
I believe there's quite a learning curve with this tool... so I won't get too discouraged about this outcome.
It's like anything else...Practice, practice, practice!

Check out our challenge and join in, friends.  I hope to see you there.
Thanks so much for stopping... and have a fantastic day!

Hi Peggy. I actually came here to say that I love your bright background...then I read of your air compressor. You seem to be doing wonderfully well with it to me. I bought myself one a few weeks ago and still haven't quite mastered it. You have done a brilliant job with yours!

Cute card. Reminds me of when I used to skate on the creek that froze over as a youngster. That WAS a few years ago tho. TFS
