Two snowmen cards

Recently, I took more watercoloring with Tombow Markers classes from Krista Schneider. Krista is amazing. She creates the most vibrant colors and has the most unique approach to combining colors for a visual WOW-PUNCH-IN-THE-EYES artwork. I can only hope to gleen a bit of information for her technique with each class I take.

We made many cards at the classes but today I wanted to share two snowmen cards.

Both of these are painted using Tombow Markers and a paintbrush and pot of water. In Krista's classes she teaches her technique of covering first with the lightest coloring and with the right amount of water on your wet brush to pull in the darker colors for shading and shadowing.

Both cards are made with stamps designed by Heather's Stamping Haven.

These were a lot of fun to make, and while I have a long, LONG way to go in my painting to even come close to Krista's vibrant colors, I do enjoy her classes and had a great time learning from her.

Until later....


  1. Taking classes are always so fun! I would love take that watercolor marker class! Your cards are just GORGEOUS!

  2. FABULOUS Ms Jennifer! Your watercolouring is just wonderful!

  3. You underestimate yourself. Your snowmen are beautiful! Think it's just a bit of learning and some practice with the markers, as your colored pencil coloring is fabulous. Keep practicing and sharing with us, Jennifer!

  4. Ahhh....your cards are GORGEOUS, but you know what? All the other cards you share with your tombow are just as beautiful! I think you have this technique totally mastered Jennifer! You sure inspire me! Thank you so much for the award, I will add it to my blog today!! Can't wait to see what else you are making for CHristmas cards!!! Hugs!

  5. What a simply elelgant snowman! Love the whole design.

  6. Ooooooops! I forgot to say the snowman on top is also very cute, sweet, and pretty too! The whole card just says Christmas!
