The evergreen trees and the ice hole were stencilled on Bristol paper using blender brushes and Faded Jeans and Salty Ocean distress inks (DI), respectively. A blue Polychromos pencil was used to draw / shade the ice edge and ice hole.
The ice fishing bear image from Sheltering Love was left over from a previous card and was what sparked the idea for the scene in the first place. “Snow” from the Let It Snow die set was die cut from black glossy paper. Splattered with diluted white gouache paint for snow. Stamped “day” in black from Happy Sayings to finish.
