Snow falling on pinesPosted: December 29, 2010
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.
