Penny Black Snow DustPosted: December 14, 2010
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.
