The KittiSki in the Winter Olympics

Hello Everyone and welcome back to my blog!

The Winter Olympics are almost finished and if you are following them you probably already know it and if you don’t I have to tell you that Norway did extremely well with over 30 medals! I am very proud of my husband’s country! And that is why I wanted to create a card for him that would celebrate this incredible achievement.

I chose the image called The KittiSki from Knitty Kitty Digis.

I have colored the image with the “No line” technique.
I printed the image on watercolor paper using MW and the washout coloring effect so that the lines would be barely visible. I also printed the image with the normal black lines on a printer paper so that I could look at it and make sure I would follow the lines.
I used Carioca Aquarelle pencils, a Nr 1 and a Nr 2 brush to color the image.

To create the Olympic rings I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in Pale Gold.
The sentiment is a chipboard from Make it Crafty.
I colored the backing of the word with white acrylic paint and the word itself with gold acrylic.
I also used texture paste with a palette knife to create the effect of snow.
And I finished the panel with some glossy accents on the glasses, glitter stickles on the hat and white gel pen for the stars.
I adhered my scene on a Kraft card base.

I had so much fun coloring this image and creating the card and I hope you like it.
You might want to pin the pictures on your board for later reference and inspiration.
Thank you for visiting me today,
