As I start working with the darker background ( I like #93 Blue Bayou) I saved a few circled areas as if for large snow drops. Not too many... just a few as you'll see. I used a dark blue ( #162) Fabrico marker to outline directly adjacent to the white coat... then the fantastix and no 93 bottlled ink near the coat.
As I got a couple inches away from the white coat, I used a paint brush of mixed ink ( #93) with Folk Art Floating Medium found (near acrylic paints.. usually bottom shelf) at Micheals. I've been getting good feedback on this product but know that with a medium, the wet ink can still bleed which is why I used a fantastic with straight ink directly adjacent to Santa. I felt I had better control this way.
Now to get this 100% dry( a hair dryer is your friend) before the final step of adding snowflake rubbings.
