the wondrous gift is givenPosted: December 13, 2008
Last night I sat down and wrote in most of my Christmas cards, discovering in the process that I needed a few more. The inspiration for this one was a picture I saw on a friend’s blog yesterday. This kind of scene can be seen around here quite often at sunset or sunrise.
To make it I tore a piece of card to place across the bottom to mask my snowy area. I positioned it at the bottom before stamping the trees in versamark. I embossed them with black and then positioned the masking strip a little higher before sponging my sky, first in Pretty in Pink, then Almost Amethyst, Going Gray and Bashful Blue. I sponged a little Amethyst behind the trees and stamped some background trees in Going Grey. To give the foreground snow a bit of definition I tore tiny strips out of a piece of paper and sponged through the holes.
