Cartoon Capers / High on Life
Millions of Peanuts fans look forward to holiday TV specials featuring Charlie Brown and the gang. Front and center in that happy group is Stamper Lynette Etzel of Marion, Iowa. Her favorite character is Snoopy and when she saw this image on eBay, she just had to have it.
Cruising along in a sky of gorgeous blues created with several Distress Oxide inks, Snoopy is surrounded by puffy clouds Lynette cut out with a cloud die. The clouds were colored with Oxide colors and highlighted with white pigment ink. Along with Snoopy’s little feathered friend, the clouds were popped up with foam dots for dimension and floated over background clouds which were created with Lynette’s favorite cloud stencil. This double image technique adds lots of depth to the scene.
