Winter SkyPosted: January 1, 2013
A couple of days ago my husband and I went X-Country skiing. After two big storms the woodland we skied through looked beautiful. I took a few photos but the weather was too cold to take my mitts off and fiddle with my camera for long. As we were heading back to the car the late afternoon sky was turning pink and apricot where it met the expanse of untouched snow in front of us. I took a mental picture rather than freeze my fingers and then tried to recreate it this afternoon with stamps and ink.
I masked the horizon first so I could sponge the sky in pink, yellow, grey and blue. I also dotted some grey twigs along the top of the hill. After removing the mask I partially inked the Winter sky stamp with a grey marker so I could make a little patch of brush in a hollow of snow. When the masks were removed I stamped the complete stamp in grey then black.
