The snow and wintry scenes are so pretty looking when you're viewing from inside your nice warm house, aren't they??!! I love making wintry scenes on my cards too and have been seeing a lot of cards out in blogland recently where they are using torn paper as a masking edge to make snow banks, so I thought I would give it a try. Big fail for me...my snow banks looked more like a gray and cloudy sky! I ended up cutting my paper with gently sloping hills and used that as a mask, and had much better luck! I have 2 cards to share with you and here's the 1st one...
I started by ink blending at the top of my card with blue ink and worked down to a bit of purple and pink (very lightly). At this point I did some splattering for snow with white acrylic paint and then added my snow banks with Soft Stone ink (Gina K). For a first try, I didn't think it looked too bad.
Next I stamped a tree line twice using Gina K's Christmas Greenery stamp set in black for a silhouetted look and also stamped my sentiment from the same stamp set. A pretty simple card but I really like the way it turned out!
My 2nd card I did basically the same way except in a vertical format and using Lavinia stamps.
I used the following stamps to create my silhouette scene: Christmas Tree Group, Forest Hares, & Forest Scene. I love the bit of orange blending in this sunset scene...it really adds a pop of color! These types of cards are very addicting to make, so there just might be a few more coming!
There is a lot of BEAUTIFUL inspiration from the DT for this challenge, and you can find it all right HERE. This challenge is open till Thursday, Nov. 30th @ 8:00PM.
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
