Penny Black Snow Dust

It is not quite as snowy as this card just yet, but it won’t be long.  When I bought the Penny Black wreath stamp, I also bought this PB stamp called Snow Dust.  I did my masking with post-it notes as I usually do, both to frame the scene and to create the snowy hills.  I stamped the trees in versmark with a base of black and then embossed in clear before sponging in the sky and the hills.  Once all the sponging was done I realised that my tree bases were too black compared to the white branches so I used a super fine black marker to draw a line under several branches so that they appeared to be snow laden not made out of snow.

I noticed that the technique lovers challenge at Splitcoast this week is to use sponging, so I will be participating with at least this card, but probably more.

    What’s so amazing about your snowscapes is that I can feel and smell the crisp air, they look so real.

    I keep trying to get my sponging smooth and even like yours…..many different sponges, inks, papers, techniques……..still “no cigar!” Not even close. NOT giving up!

    Thanks for sharing.
