Snow Angel

Oh gosh, doesn't your heart just melt looking at this adorable snow angel from Whipper Snapper? Mine does! She is BIG! There was entirely too much white paper behind her when I cropped it into a typical rectangle, covering up all that delish Basic Grey patterned paper, so I just gave in and cut her out.

One thing I learned when coloring this pudgy little snow lady was shading 'snow' looks a lot nicer when two different colors are used. One for the main shadows, then a totally different color for 'accent' shadows. In this case, I used a typical blue with a greenish tint, then went back and added a bit more in a light spring green. For some reason, it just added so much depth the shading. It's hard to see in the pictures, but trust me, it works!
Thanks for looking!
