Snowy New YearPosted: January 10, 2012 Filed under: Holiday Sampler, Lovely as a Tree 6 Comments
As my Christmas card count was very low this year I have made a few New Year cards for people I still want to send a greeting to. This one features Marina Mist, an SU colour I just purchased and really like. I masked the hill, embossed the trees and snowflakes in clear and then brayered the sky. I’ll definitely use this technique again; I like the crispness of one colour with white.
Have a great day.

Really pretty, Heather. You’re right – using just one color with white just makes it really stand out. This marina mist is lovely with white, and the scene you’ve created is even lovelier. Brayered? Never tried it, but I just might have to! Beautiful card.
Hi Heather – noticed Lydia put one one of your gorgeous cards on FB and Pinterest! It was so gorgeous in purple!!
I love emboss resist and you’re right Heather… Marina Mist is a great colour, I think I must get some.
It’s a beautiful scene, but then you are the past master at this technique!
Definitely an eye-catching combo, marina mist and white! What a lovely snowy scene. Which I prefer on a card to in real life… 😉
this card takes my breath away.
it is spectacular!!
thanks for sharing.
This is so pretty, Heather. I do like the solid vibrant blue inking. Your snow scene really stands out.
