A New YearPosted: January 2, 2011
Happy New Year everyone. I started a post yesterday featuring some of my favourites from the cards I made over the last year but I didn’t really have the time to put it together so I decided to give you a new card instead. If you want to look at some fabulous favourites from 2010 take a look at the CAS Best of 2010 thread at Splitcoast today. It is overflowing with inspiration! Thank you to those who shared their favourites and thank you to those kind people who listed a few of my cards, it is a thrill to make the list.
At this time of year the scene in the card above should typically be what I see out the window. Instead we have had fog and rain all day. The thin layer of snow we had is fast disappearing and green grass is evident. I will keep posting snowy cards in the hope that they soon resemble the view from my front door.
My technique was the same as usual for this snow scape card, but I used more dramatic lines and colours. Once again I added snow after all the stamping and sponging was done by splattering and painting with a mix of acrylic paint and water.
Thank you for all your kind comments about the tutorial, and thank you, Sue for emailing a picture of your lovely card. As promised I put all the names of those who commented in a draw for the original card and I asked my son to pull a name out of a hat yesterday. The winner is… Janet Kay.
I will be in touch to get your address, Janet so I can put the card in the mail for you.
