Snow falling on pines

When I showed this card to my second daughter she told me with a smile that I was in a rut.  I prefer to think I am on a roll!  I am concentrating on sponged landscapes at present, but it is entirely possible that tomorrow I might have no inspiration for another and start instead to punch out squares  or emboss flowers.

I intended for this one to be a one layer card but when removing the post-it notes at the end one took some of the white cardstock with it so I had to cut out my scene and create a new base.  I stayed simple just popping it up a little.  The falling snow was inspired by a gorgeous card Sally made here.  I used her technique of mixing a little white acrylic paint with water and splattering it  over the stamping and sponging.

Thanks for all your comments about the tutorial.  I am glad it has been helpful and will draw a name  to send the original card to on Saturday.


Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Taglines (Flourishes)
Inks:   Basic Black, Perfect Plum, Going Gray
Cardstock:   Flourishes Classic White

    Oh, yes, you’re definitely on a roll, not in a rut! This is lovely. The background colors are beautiful. I really like the card cut and popped up, too. Another something to try! A distinct advantage is that you can place it exactly where you want on your card. Lovely creation!

    Oh Lordy, yes you are on a roll. Ruts are easy to come by, rolls produce real art. I do ruts all the time!

    This card is my new fave, but I laugh at myself because I KNOW I can hide my mistakes if I use this spatter technique. But it will be my luck that this technique looks like kindergarten mistakes, if I do it, and art if you do it. 🙂
