I didn't stray too far from Ashley's card and used the tree's from the Enchanted Forrest set and came up with this:
I started just like Ashley did with Spring Rain and Blueberry Sky re-inkers and water colored the background. Once that was dry I stamped the tree's using Ocean Tides, Pinefeather, and Cocoa Bean inks. I didn't have any gesso so I used white acrylic paint to add the snow to the tree branches and the shadows beneath the tree's. I also splattered some of the white paint to look like falling snow. Here's a closer up so you can see better:
I stamped my sentiment from the O' Tannenbaum set and then framed out my Winter scene using the largest Pierced Feature Frames: Ovals in white and then added that to a piece of Bitty Big DSP in Blueberry Sky. I mounted that all to a top folding white card base and then finished off with a piece of Rustic Jute Twine and a few enamel dots in light blue. Oh, and did you notice the little bunny peeking out from the side of the oval frame (In The Meadow die)?
This was such a FUN challenge for me and Ashley's video really was filled with wonderful water coloring tips! Check it out HERE and then play along!
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
