Woodland scene: Winter editionPosted: January 22, 2011
Back in the summer I created a card using Lovely as a Tree for the OLW Stamp a Scene challenge. I was quite happy with the outcome; both the layout and the technique worked well to suggest the depth of a forest on a summer’s day. I decided to use the same layout and technique to recreate the card in fall and today I’m posting the winter edition.
I masked my two edges as usual but then added a “snowy hill horizon mask” so I could sponge the sky. Without moving any masks I stamped some trees in blue. Then I removed the top mask and repositioned the “snowy hill horizon mask” and stamped the trees in black making sure that their trunks overlapped the horizon mask. Before lowering the mask again I sponged a little blue along the edge to create the snow bank. I move and sponged the bank in a few places again before lightly sponging along the bottom mask.
A favourite stamp, a favourite technique, a favourite layout and in my favourite colour!
